Michael Davis (born 5 June 1943 in Detroit, Michigan) is a bass guitarist, singer, songwriter and music producer. He replaced original MC5 bassist Pat Burrows when singer Rob Tyner and guitarist Wayne Kramer decided that they liked Davis' style and wanted him in the band. MC5 comprises: Michael Davis, bass, Wayne Kramer, guitar, Fred "Sonic" Smith, guitar, Dennis "Machine Gun" Thompson, drums, and, Rob Tyner, vocals, . Together they were the hardcore of the late 1960s musical revolution that began in the American Midwest. Formed in the fall of 1965, the MC5 created an explosive sound that put them at the forefront of the radical social and political scene in their native Detroit. They became the symbolic figureheads for an artists' collective called Trans Love Energies, as well as for The White Panther Party, and embodied the character of the entire scene - subversive, extravagant, and totally hip. The MC5 are the proud forefathers of banned albums and censored lyrics and liner notes.show more
