Don Davis, musician, producer and composer, dies
Question of the Day
DETROIT (AP) - A family spokeswoman says Don Davis, a longtime Detroit musician, producer, composer and business executive, has died at 75.
Lisa Wilmore said Davis died Thursday in Michigan after a brief illness. She declined to say where he died.
Davis was a session musician during the 1960s at Motown Records in Detroit. He then went to work for Memphis, Tennessee-based Stax Records. He also started the independent Groovesville label.
He was a co-writer and co-producer of “Who’s Making Love,” a 1968 Stax hit for Johnnie Taylor.
Davis had been chairman and CEO of Detroit-based First Independence Bank.
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said in a statement Friday that Davis was “the epitome of Detroit’s can-do spirit.”
Davis is survived by his wife, Kiko, and three children.
