(Classic Rock) David Bowie's longtime drummer Dennis Davis has died after a battle with cancer. His passing was confirmed by Bowie producer Tony Visconti in a Facebook post in which he describes the sticksman as "a magical man."

Visconti adds: "He was one of the most creative drummers I have ever worked with. He came into David Bowie's life when we recorded some extra tracks for Young Americans and stayed with us through Scary Monsters and beyond.

"He was a disciplined jazz drummer who tore into rock with a jazz sensibility. Listen to the drum breaks on Black Out from the Heroes album. He had a conga drum as part of his set up and he made it sound like two musicians were playing drums and congas. By Scary Monsters he was playing parts that were unthinkable but they fit in so perfectly." Read more here.
