Songwriter Ned Miller, whose songs were recorded by Ricky Van Shelton and Connie Smith, as well as Bing Crosby and Charles Manson, died last month in Medford, Oregon. According to the New York Times, Miller passed away on March 18th and his death was confirmed this week by his wife, and fellow songwriter, Sue Miller. He was 90 years old.
Recording for the Capitol label, Miller reached Number 7 in 1965 with "Do What You Do Do Well," which he penned with his wife. Another of their collaborations, "Invisible Tears," would later be recorded by Connie Smith and also by cult leader Charles Manson in the late Sixties. "Dark Moon," another of Miller's best-known tunes, has been covered by dozens of performers for decades, including Bing Crosby, Gale Storm, Bonnie Guitar, and, in 1993, by Chris Isaak.
Miller's own performing career was cut short by bouts of stage fright, which he sometimes combated by sending a friend to perform as "Ned Miller" in his place. After he and his wife moved to California, Miller no longer performed but continued writing songs. He is survived by his wife, a sister, four daughters, a son, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
