The great drummer Buddy Miles is dead. When I was a kid I listened to my older brother's albums all the time. When I was ten the album I listened to the most was Buddy Miles' Them Changes. I'd imagine the album cover alone is one of the reasons I became a drummer. I can still remember the texture and softness of the album cover. You poor folks who don't dig the vinyl will never know what i'm talking about. I had a temp-evil girlfriend who tried to send me a message by playing Down By The River (listen to the lyrics)but it was the original Neil Young version so it didn't even faze me. The Buddy Miles version still heals me and gives me solace. Thanks Buddy. Rest in Peace brother.
