Biography
'Wild' Bill Davison (January 5, 1906, Defiance, Ohio - November 14, 1989, Santa Barbara, California) was a fiery jazz cornet player who emerged in the 1920s, but did not achieve recognition until the 1940s. He is best remembered for his association with the bandleader Eddie Condon, with whom he worked and recorded from the mid-1940s through to the 1960s. Early life: Born William Edward Davison; son of Edward and Anna (Kreps) Davison; married Anne Stewart (stage name of Anne Hendlin McLaughlin), 1954. His nickname 'Wild Bill' reflected a reputation for heavy drinking and womanising (Anne Stewart was his fourth wife).
