Pullin’ ‘Tubes: R.I.P. Buddy Miles

I know we are a fews days late on this one, but we want to take a moment to remember the legacy of legendary drummer Buddy Miles – who passed away last week at the age of 60. Yet another legend, taken too soon.

While we may all have loved his work suppling the vocals on the California Raisins ads back in the ’80s, he’s best known as a member of Jimi Hendrix’s sadly short lived Band Of Gypsys. What better way to pay tribute to Buddy then watching him in action at the Fillmore East from New Year’s Eve 1969:

Their Fillmore run mark the band’s first live performances, which is pretty amazing considering the music culled from the January 1st shows and put out as Band Of Gypsys can arguably be considered one of the greatest live albums of all time.
