George Allen "Buddy" Miles, 1947-2008


Condolences to the family of Buddy Miles, who passed away last night.  He was, of course, best known as 1/3 of Jimi Hendrix’s "Band of Gypsies", along with bassist Billy Cox.  Cause of his death is unknown.

Hat tip to Bob Davis, who first shared the news with me this morning.
