Kick Out The Jams

Crazy wild stuff that took the world by storm.

Michael moved on in 1972 to play bass with Destroy All Monsters.  This is a live version of Nov 22nd.  This video includes Stooges guitarist, Ron Asheton.  The famous punk sound of all these early creators is here in all its glory.

A great bass player, highly respected and part of rock and roll history, RIP Michael Davis.
