Pete Quaife, RIP


Pete Quaife, the original bassist for the Kinks, has died at age 66. I'll honor him with an early Kinks single, "Everybody's Gonna Be Happy," that shows off his bass playing to good effect:

Quaife left the band in 1969 and left pop music in general not long afterwards, turning to commercial art and cartooning. Requiescat in pace.
