Original Kinks Bassist Dies
Original Kinks bassist Pete Quaife has died at the age of 66.
He was a member of the band from 1961 until 1969, playing on such classics as You Really Got Me, All The Day And All Of The Night, Dedicated Follower Of Fashion and Waterloo.
After The Kinks, Quaife formed country rockers Maple Oak, but left them in 1970 and virtually gave up playing. In recent times, he’s been working as a graphic artist in Canada. However, in 1990 he did play with The Kinks when the band were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
Quaife has been suffering from kidney problems since 1998.
