Floyd Miles (RIP)
Daytona Beach, FL-based bluesman Floyd Miles first emerged as the singer/drummer with the Universals, a gritty soul band which enjoyed huge popularity on the oceanfront circuit during the early 1960s; among Miles' acolytes were the young Duane and Gregg Allman. An early satellite member of the Allman Brothers Band, Miles later went on to back Clarence Carter but otherwise remained primarily a regional favorite until he finally made his headlining debut with the 1992 Ichiban release Crazy Man; Goin' Back to Daytona followed in 1994, and he also gained national exposure on tour as a member of the Gregg Allman and Friends group.
Tommy got his first taste of the blues at a professional level when Capitol Records offered his older sister a contract. She was 14! By the time he was 12, he had already been offered a deal. Having parents who valued an education and letting kids be kids, Tommy was swayed away from the temptations of the recording business. Until now.
