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.
