Tracing My Dad • The Life and Music of Dennis Davis
Volume 8 • An Interview with George Murray • Part 2

David Bowie’s D.A.M. Trio bassist, George Murray is interviewed by his fellow band member drummer Dennis Davis sons, Darien and Hikaru, and by his own son, Marcus Murray. He talks about his times with Bowie and the late Dennis Davis. Recorded on the 28th of November, 2017.
George Murray, along with the other D.A.M Trio members, Dennis and guitarist Carlos Alomar, played for David Bowie on his albums, Station to Station, Low, Heroes, Lodger and Scary Monsters, and on the 1976 Isolar I and 1978 Isolar II World tours. In 1981, following the period with Bowie, George Murray played on Jerry Harrison from Talking Heads, all-star-cast solo album The Red and the Black, and then apparently totally disappeared from the music scene.
In 2017, Hikaru tracked down and interviewed his “Uncle George” in Los Angeles…

Dennis Davis passed away on April 6th, 2016. Hikaru is the youngest child of the late drummer. Hikaru interviews some of the greatest musicians and producers who have worked with his late father, Dennis Davis, as well as Dennis’s friends and family.

Dennis Davis played with David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, Roy Ayers, George Benson and many others.

Hikaru hopes to learn how and why his father was one of the greatest drummers, and hear inspiring stories of his father through this tribute project.
