Different worlds

Buddy Miles: “A lot of people have given me personal high praise as a drummer from my work with Hendrix,” Buddy said in a 2000 interview. “And that’s not to exclude Mitch Mitchell, because I think he’s a hell of a drummer and did a hell of a job with the Jimi Hendrix Experience—but by comparison, it is different worlds. The public was led to believe that [the Gypsys] broke up because I was uncooperative and this and that. As far as I’m concerned, the live album we did speaks for itself. It’s one of the most popular live rock albums ever made.” – (With thanks to Luigi Garuti)
