Nugent's ex-drummer found dead in Paulding County home


Published on: 04/15/2008

Police are investigating the apparent suicide of a former drummer for rocker Ted Nugent.

Corporal Brandon Gurley with the Paulding County Sheriff's Department says 59-year-old Clifford Davies was found dead from a gunshot wound in his suburban Atlanta home Sunday. Gurley said Tuesday authorities are awaiting the results of an autopsy.


A woman who answered the phone at Davies' home declined comment. She confirmed Davies was a drummer with Ted Nugent.

Reed Beaver, who owns Equametric Studio in Marietta where Davies was a chief engineer, says Davies played on the recording of Nugent's trademark song "Cat Scratch Fever." Beaver says Davies called him Saturday "extremely distraught" over money for medical bills.
