Buddy Miles would’ve been 74 today... It’s warming to see social media filled with heartfelt tributes to one the most criminally underrated musicians of all time.
It’s very difficult to place the “Baddest of the Bad” into a specific genre. Listening to Miles will have you wondering if it’s soul, funk, R&B, jazz, or rock and roll.. Whether it’s Electric Flag, Band of Gypsys, Carlos Santana, California Raisins, or any one of the many variations of his own Express, that distinct style and rhythm is undeniably Buddy Miles and you can feel it. And that’s just the musical gift he left us..
And, as the city of Omaha, Nebraska proclaimed in 2017:
Happy #BuddyMiles Day!!! 🎶❤️🎶
