Birth name: George Miles.
Born: September 5, 1947 in North Omaha, Nebraska.
He began his musical career at twelve when he joined his father's jazz band The Bebops. As a teenager Miles played in a variety of bands including Ruby & the Romantics, the Ink Spots and the Delfonics.
In 1967 he formed Electric Flag with guitarist Mike Bloomfield. While the lead vocalist for the Flag was Nick Gravenites, fans of the Flag always looked forward to the numbers sung by Miles. Listen to the slow blues song "Texas" by the short-lived Flag and you will get a sense of what Miles brought to the group. The group broke up after their 2nd album, and Miles formed the Buddy Miles Express.
