David Hampton Parris
Birth: Oct. 14, 1954
Death: Nov. 30, 1996

Musician. He was the original drummer for the group Wild Cherry which was famous for the song "Play That Funky Music." However he was only 17 years old at the time and decided that fame was not something that he wanted, so he left the group shortly after they became well known. He later became a radio DJ for numerous radio stations and became known as "Motown Dave." The fame that he had not wanted had come to him again. He died in a car accident in 1996. (bio by: Tim Crutchfield)
