Michael Davis, The Bassist for MC5 Passed Away

The bassist for a short lived but great sounding classic rock band passed away.  Michael Davis was the bass player for the MC5 which put out three albums between 1969 and 1971. The band is probably best known for the title track of their debut album "Kick Out the Jams." Here is a video of the song from youtube...

I heard about his death in Ultimate Classic Rock and you can read more about his life there.

I first learned about this band from a teacher I had in eighth grade. Probably not the history lesson he wanted to stick with his students but he might be happy at least something stuck..
