Dennis Davis is an American drummer and session musician best known for his work with David Bowie.

Dennis Davis Amazing Drum Solo

He was born and raised in Manhattan, New York City and studied with drummers Max Roach and Elvin Jones. He met guitarist Carlos Alomar when they were both playing with Roy Ayers. Davis was hired by David Bowie in 1974 with Alomar and bassist George Murray. Davis formed the rhythm section which performed on a number of Bowie's albums released in the 1970s. The snare sound used on Bowie's Low album is considered one of the most influential musical recordings in popular music. 

In the early 2000s Davis played percussion on David Bowie's live tours, including Bowie's last tour, A Reality Tour in 2003. The drummer for that band was Sterling Campbell who was a previously a student of Davis.
