Buddy Miles Birthday Tribute! Watch NOW!

Buddy Miles was an amazing musician with many historic music experiences that he joyfully shared.  The collaboration with Buddy Miles on The Bluesberries album with Double Trouble in 2002 produced many timeless tracks but on this track, Rock and Roll the Blues, Buddy tells a biographical story the way only the Buddy Miles could do it.   Play it LOUD while you enjoy watching rock history and smile!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BUDDY!  Thank you for sharing your gift!

The Bluesberries Album was Rocky's introduction to Jim Gaines, the Grammy Award winning producer for Santana, Steve Miller, Stevie Ray Vaughan and many others.   After this meeting, Rocky and Jim became life long friends and Jim produced Rocky's solo albums.  

At home with Jim Gaines and his wife, Sandy Carroll.

TEARIN' ME UP - Lyrics

Tearin' Me Up,

Why you do me like you do?

Tearin' Me Up,

When I'd do anything for you?

No matter what I do,

It just don't seem enough.

You're Tearin' Me Up.

 

Using me up,

Think I'm headed for a fall.

Using me up,

You'll be gone when you got it all,

Got it all.

Throwing my love away,

Like an old paper cup.

Using me up.

 

It's eating me up.

I don't see how this can last.

It's eating me up,

And I feel I'm fading fast.

It's like I'm addicted to you,

And I can't get enough

And it's eating me up.

No matter what I do,

It just don't seem enough.

You're Tearin' Me Up.
