R.I.P. SPENCER DAVIS, 'Gimme Some Lovin' Rocker Dies at 8121 October 2020
Spencer Davis, founding member and namesake of the UK rock band THE SPENCER DAVIS GROUP, has died at the age of 81. His agent, Bob Birk, confirmed to the BBC that Davis passed away in a California hospital on October 19th after suffering heart failure while being treated for pneumonia.
It was in 1963 when Davis met the Winwood brothers and formed THE SPENCER DAVIS GROUP. Their cover of reggae artist Jackie Edwards’ “Keep on Running” became their first No. 1 UK hit when it was released as a single off their sophomore LP, 1966’s The Second Album. Later that year, they released Autumn ’66, which featured another Edwards cover, “Somebody Help Me”, also topping the charts.
In 2006, Davis revived THE SPENCER DAVIS GROUP moniker again as a live project, performing throughout the next decade. However, there were different touring lineups for the US and European treks, and none featuring the original members.
