Buddy Miles: Another Chapter in Rock History Slips Away

I was sad to see another chapter in rock history slip away with the death Tuesday of Buddy Miles at age 60.

Buddy Miles co-founded “Band of Gypsys” with Jimi Hendrix and also played on his “Electric Ladyland” album. Although he is most often referenced in this context I remember him most for “Them Changes”, a song he wrote and performed. This song has been covered countless times since and is worth a listen in all its forms.

I went through my vinyl archive and sure enough, I still have the LP! I snapped a picture of it to include in this post.
