I met with you in Ann Arbor, MI back in the late 60s. We spent a wonderful afternoon together- I had sent you a telegram in response to a phone call you made to me- you were elated and said it was the first telegram you had ever received. I was very sad to hear of your leaving us. I have very fond thoughts of that afternoon together. RIP you were a great friend...
We knew Mike for about 5 years. We met through a mutual friend, Kenny B. We (Wife and I)were from OH,so we shared a Midwest upbringing. Mike got me a job working with him for VAP in Tucson. He and daughter Ursula would come over and visit. He was a good father. He was interested in the art scene in Tucson at the time through my wife's involvement. We bought his painting easle from Wayne State days off of him as it was nicer than what we had. He would sit in sometimes on drums with Kirby and me as we rehearsed at his house, as we combined PA equipment. He recorded a band I had with a friend's 4 track. I would repair his tilt steering wheel on a multitude of Chevys. I do not know how he did not suffer back damage from putting his Ampeg SVT head in the back seat of one of his Camaros.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Very sorry for your loss. Thanks, Mike for lending us your bass when our pickup band opened for Destroy All Monsters and the Sillies at East Quad fall of 1977.Signed my copy of High Time too.
May you be comforted this scriptural promise. "And there will be many of those asleep in the ground of dust who will wake up, these to indefinitely lasting life . . ."
With heart felt sympathy may the God of comfort help you.
R.I.P. Michael. Condolences to his family.
My sympathy to the Davis family on your loss. Michael was an important part of possibly the most underrated influential band of the 1960's. May his memory be eternal and hopefully with Fred Sonic Smith and Rob Tyner together again they will kick up some noise. The legacy of the MC5 and the Grande Ballroom will always live on. It's time to testify!
I am so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our pain and sorrow give you all the needed endurance to continue to go one day to next. Psalms 46:1
I give you a testimonial...The MC5. Man, you were THERE.
Michael was a truly gifted musician,I got turned on to MC5 at an odler age and they are great,may he suffer no more.R.I.P MICHAEL...
Thanks for the great music.
May the God of all comfort grant you peace and comfort at this time. (2Cor. 1:2,3)
My condolences to the Davis' for your loss. There is comfort during this mournful time through friends, family, and God. 1 Thessalonians 5:14; Isaiah 61:2
MY CONDOLENCES TO THE DAVIS FAMILY 2 COR 1:3 BLESSED BE THE GOD AND FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST,THE FATHER OF TENDER MERICES AND THE GOD OF ALL COMFORT.
(KICK OUT THE JAMS!)
To the the family of Michael Davis - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that he will be missed by many.
Many of us remember MD as a member of the MC5, however, lets us never forget that he was a husband and a father to a family. I am sure he was very good at those tasks. May God bless the family, friends and fans who adored him. Soar on Michael "Thunder" Davis to great heights in everlasting life.
We were so shocked to hear of Mike's passing as my husband, Al & I were old friends of his & Kenny Brown's from the 1980's while attending Pima Commmunity College & U of A in Tucson.Sadly enough,we lost track of each other when we moved to Albuquerque,NM.
You might recall if he ever mentioned that he attended a private art showing of mine at a friends home in Tucson and used to jam out with my husband,Al at our house,along with Kirby Eckhert & others. REST IN PEACE OLD ROCKER AND FRIEND...NOW WE FINALLY KNOW WHERE YOU ARE...IN A BETTER PLACE... WHERE THE MUSIC NEVER STOPS AND THE DEGREE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO OBTAIN... IS TAUGHT BY...NON-OTHER THAN... THE ULTIMATE MASTER OF THE FINEST ARTS IN THE UNIVERSE!
STILL...WE MISS YOU DEAR ONE...UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN...FACE TO FACE... SOMEDAY... WHERE THERE IS NO SEPARATION... NO SORROW AND NO MORE PAIN.
MC5, how proud he must have been to be apart of that! RIP MICHAEL!
I wish to express my condolences to the family. I know that your loss is great. May you find comfort from the God of all comfort who helps us to cope with our grief. It can be so hard to face each day without your loved one, but the love and support of family and friends can help to ease your pain and sorrow.
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Michael Davis. I hope that God will continue to give the family strength as they endure the days ahead.
Another great talent that will be missed. I'm 57, and have "Kick out the Jams " on my Ipod. It helps me keep things in perspective and lets me know I don't have to be part of the "Status Quo"... Thank you
A great lose. Sympathy to the family.
