Spencer Davis 08072006 NSU 01British guitarist Spencer Davis of The Spencer Davis Group passed away this past week at the age of 81. Geddy Lee took some time out to remember the iconic guitarist via his official Instagram:

Last night I heard the sad news that the great Spencer Davis has passed away. It made me recall, when as a mere 14 year old, I first heard that infectious, repeating 2 note bass riff that drew me into that joyous song "Gimme Some Lovin". It was The Spencer Davis Group, with Stevie Winwood and his brother Muff, playing that groove on his Harmony H-22 Bass. That song along with "I'm a Man" "Keep on Running" and so many others made me run out to buy that album as it became a mainstay of my early listening days.

RIP Spencer - you brought so much great music to so many and I thank you.
