He was pronounced dead on arrival at San Francisco General.

Fatal Motorcycle Accident Affects Family and Fans of Jef Leppard

Mr. Davis played in a number of Bay Area heavy metal bands before settling more and more into the role of a much sought after audio engineer. Mr. Davis helped Bay Area bands like Aerial Ruin create a unique sound that helped define each band’s sound vision. Mr. Davis’ passion for his job and the music he loved meant he often spent long hours working directly with band members on track after track of recorded music for little or no compensation. Although Jeff worked full-time during the day, his unwavering commitment to friends and music meant he was more than willing to work late into the night helping the musicians that came to admire and love him.
