Hey Herb,

there is indeed pretty much zero information about that dude. I do have this picture that you may not have seen yet.

John Davis is widley known as one of the voices of Milli Vanilli. http://www.johndavis-millivanilli.com/
Originally from the Carolinas, he came to Germany with the US-Army in the 80ties,
and as many he stayed in the Nuremberg area after the military service.
He had a local band called "Joker" where he used to be the singer and bass player.
A hell of a slap-monster. He was the real ♣♣♣♣ to us kids back in the day. (More or less the reason I switched permanently to bass.)
