Dennis Davis (David Bowie’s Drummer) Dies
Less than three months after David Bowie passed of cancer, his longtime drummer David Dennis also passed from cancer.
“He was one of the most creative drummers I have ever worked with,” [Bowie producer, Tony] Visconti wrote… “He was a disciplined jazz drummer who tore into rock with a jazz sensibility. Listen to the drum breaks on ‘Black Out’ from the Heroes album. He had a conga drum as part of his set up and he made it sound like two musicians were playing drums and congas. By Scary Monsters he was playing parts that were unthinkable, but they fit in so perfectly.”
