Jimi Hendrix’s Best Buddy- Buddy Miles

by Chaz on March 15, 2011

In 1968, Mile left the Flag and formed his own group, the Buddy Miles Express (which featured guitarist Jim McCarty, later of Cactus, and, briefly, Hendix’s bassist Billy Cox). Miles did a handful of notable sessions, including recording dates with John McLaughlin (Devotion) and Muddy Waters (Fathers and Sons), and he also appeared on Jimi Hendrix’s studio masterwork, Electric Ladyland. Jimi and Buddy became good friends and were soon playing together often in after-hours jam sessions.
