The ABB Mourns the Loss of Floyd Miles, Long time Family Member and Brother
Posted by: Rowland on Friday, January 26, 2018 - 03:27 PM

The Allman Brothers Band are saddened by the recent passing of our long time friend Floyd Miles.


Floyd was a childhood friend of his Daytona Beach neighbors Duane and Gregg Allman. As a member of The Universals, a seminal local 60’s soul band, he was the singing drummer who schooled the Allman boys in blues, soul and R&B music. He was the friend who took them to the barber shop across the tracks to buy the discs that became the musical foundation that spawned the Allman Brothers Band. In later years he toured as a member of the Gregg Allman Band, regularly singing his song “Back To Daytona” The Allman Brothers Band family and crew will miss this family member and brother, our sincere heartfelt sorrow go out to the Miles family.

It was several years ago I met Floyd at a Gregg concert at the Peabody in Daytona. He performed " going back to Daytona" ( I believe Gregg's Mom was in attendance at this show ) I waited till after show when I met him. He was a perfect gentleman. Signed a CD for me..had to have his daughter remember to collect the 20 dollars from me!!
Another legend gone..but not forgotten. RIP Floyd.

Always loved seeing Floyd at Gregg's shows. The affection that Gregg felt for Floyd was so apparent. I always considered it a special treat to get to hear Floyd. The man really felt the blues. Try to pick up his cd Goin' Back to Daytona. Floyd sounds great, and Gregg has some great vocals. Dickey also plays guitar. Great cd. RIP Floyd Miles and condolences to the Miles and Allman families. We've had way too much loss.
