Dennis Davis: Bowie, Benson and Beyond



2016 has been a year rife with the loss of artistic luminaries. On April 6, the drumming community lost a particularly influential visionary, Dennis Davis, to cancer at age 66. We spoke to Dennis shortly before his death. We discussed his childhood in Chelsea, NY; his tenure in the military; his creative partnerships with Ayers, Bowie, and Stevie Wonder; and his underlying artistic philosophy. You can listen to that interview here.
