Belated RIP Buddy Miles

Posted on: Wednesday, Mar 5, 2008

While I was away I missed posting the sad news about Buddy Miles.  From the BBC site.

Drummer Buddy Miles, who played with Jimi Hendrix in his last regular group, Band of Gypsys, has died aged 60.

The trio was born out of Hendrix’s British band, the Experience, and released a live album in 1970.

Miles had previously worked on the Electric Ladyland album, where his funky, tight drum patterns helped to refresh Hendrix’s sound.

The drummer, who had struggled with a long-term illness, died in his home in Austin, Texas.

Here is Buddy with his guvnor.
