Michael Davis, bass player with US rock band MC5, has died of liver failure aged 68.
Led by singer Rob Tyner, MC5 are widely regarded as pioneers of US punk rock.
Born on 5 June 1943, David replaced original bassist Pat Burrows when Tyner and lead guitarist Wayne Kramer decided they liked his style.
He went on to play on the Detroit band's debut album Kick Out The Jams, the title track with its inflammatory opening statement of intent going on to be one of their best known songs. MORE HERE
