I’m writing to thank my loving wife for the surprise gift she gave me today. I was happily surprised with this framed piece for my music wall in my home office.
It’s a poster of Buddy Miles that has a couple of his signatures. I was corresponding with Buddy Miles and his wonderful wife, Sherrilae Chambers in 2004. He signed this poster and the CD cover of Buddy Miles Bluesberries I sent him. Buddy Miles surprised me by including a pair of signed Vic Firth drum sticks in the return package.
If you zoom closer you can see his signature on the mounted drum sticks.
I love the shadow box technique that Jason of Framer’s Edge Gallery & Frame did for this piece. He frames our music art and we love his attention to detail.
I especially love the color green he and Rosemary chose for the frame, isn’t it cool 🙂
I was very fortunate to see Buddy Miles with Poco on December 6, 1970 in the Fairfield University Gym. We sat in the second row that night. He was in rare form getting the gymnasium on their feet saying “Hell Yeah” to the song “We Got To Live Together”. I’ll never forget the energy he gave us that night.
The song I liked the best by Buddy Miles and his band that evening was “Dreams” a powerful soul cover of The Allman Brothers. Of course they played “Them Changes” which was great to hear as well.
