    Drummer Buddy Miles dies at 60

    Jimi Hendrix drummer Buddy Miles dies at 60

    By Mark Freeman
    Buddy Miles played the drums for Jimi Hendrix, Wilson Pickett,
    Muddy Waters, David Bowie, George Clinton and Carlos Santana.

    AUSTIN (AP) Drummer Buddy Miles, who played with Jimi Hendrix and sang in the claymation commercials featuring the California Raisins in the 1980s, has died. He was 60.

    Miles, who had been suffering from congestive heart failure, died Tuesday night in Austin, publicist Duane Lee said.

    "He loved to laugh," Lee told The Associated Press on Wednesday night. "We spent more time laughing than anything else. He was a great joke teller."

    Miles, who was born in Omaha, was performing with his father's jazz-influenced combo by the age 11. He then went on to play for The Delfonics, The Ink Spots and Wilson Pickett, according to his website.

    He co-founded the band Electric Flag in 1967. He also co-founded the Band of Gypsys with Hendrix and Billy Cox, the website said.
