June 5, 1943 – February 17, 2012
Boasting the titles of singer, songwriter, guitarist, bassist and music producer,
Detroit-born Michael Davis made his name with the seminal and incendiary
proto-punk rock act, MC5.
Pioneers of the hardcore music revolution of the late 1960s, MC5’s political ties and anti-establishment lyrics saw them firmly installed as innovators of punk and flag-bearers for an alternative generation.
Our thanks to Kim Maki (retrokimmer) for her tribute webpage to Michael.
