MC5 bass player Michael Davis dies
A Detroit native, Davis was recruited into the band while studying art at Wayne State University. Although initially based in Detroit, the MC5 moved to Ann Arbor in the late 1960s and were a core part of the scene surrounding the White Panther Party, led by John Sinclair, who was also the band's manager.
Later, Davis played in Destroy All Monsters with the late ex-Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton and Mike Kelley, who also recently passed away.
