Buddy Miles was one of the sickest drummers to ever play. He died yesterday of unknown causes at the age of 60 in his home of Austin, Texas. Miles was best known as drummer for Jimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys.
It is with tremendous sadness that we must share with all Buddy?s fans around the world that Buddy passed away peacefully and quietly at his home last night (Tuesday, February 26, 2008) in Austin, Texas surrounded by his family. Buddy will be greatly missed as a wonderful person and as a truly gifted musician who gave so much to so many through the years.
The family ask for your prayers and that you respect their privacy. A tribute show will be announced within a short period of time and all are welcome to come and share in the magic that was Buddy Miles.
Fans, friends and family will all join in a celebration of the life and music of this talented and big hearted musician, so we hope everyone can be a part of this fond farewell.
He will be missed.
