Them Changes: Buddy Miles is Dead

Buddymiles_pic Oh, man. It's a day to break out "Band of Gypsies" and those old Electric Flag records:

Buddy Miles is dead.

The drummer died Tuesday at home in Texas of conjestive heart failure. He was 60. You might know him as man assaulting the skins on "Them Changes" or from a live record with Carlos Santana.

I first heard him as the kid nailing it down for those funky white boys known as the Electric Flag.  Watch them here. Pretty nice tribute here.

You could hide a revolution in that hair.
