Rest in Peace. WaPo:

Drummer Buddy Miles died on Tuesday night.

I don't have any personal anecdotes about him and won't claim to be anything of an expert on his entire career, but I do know that "Band of Gypsys" has always been my favorite Jimi Hendrix album and Buddy Miles is a huge reason for that. Absolutely nothing against Hendrix's Experience cohorts Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, but the manner in which Jimi was locked in with fellow Gypsys Billy Cox (bass) and Miles on the recording of that Jan. 1, 1970 show just floors me every time I listen. All of the mind-blowing guitar heroics are still there (especially on "Machine Gun"), but Cox and Miles were able to bring out a previously unheard hard-hitting funkiness from Hendrix.
