Buddy Miles was an American rock drummer, vocalist, composer, and producer. He was a founding member of The Electric Flag (1967), a member of Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsys (1969–1970), founder and leader of the Buddy Miles Express and later, The Buddy Miles Band. In addition to Jimi Hendrix, Miles played and recorded with Carlos Santana, Mike Bloomfield, and others.
Miles recorded this album as a one-off with The Gun's Adrian Gurvitz in 1973. The album cover included photos of Miles and his family along with some shots of Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix, and Sly Stone.
His life was never dull and in between numerous bands and collaborations Miles served a prison term for grand theft in the late 1970s and another term for auto theft in the early 80s. He died in February 2008 aged 60. Asked how he would like to be remembered by the American music magazine Seconds in 1995, Miles simply said: "The baddest of the bad. People say I'm the baddest drummer. If that's true, thank you world."
