Mick Avory

Mick Avory is one of the most familiar names among British Invasion drummers -- as a member of the Kinks from 1964 through 1984, he got to play before the screaming crowds of the British beat boom, at home and abroad, but also on the more sophisticated records and extended concept works that made up the group's output of the late '60s and the 1970s. He was never as visible a personality as Ringo Starr -- who added acting, and just being Ringo, to his contribution on the drums to the Beatles' public presentation -- or in the same league musically with Keith Moon, Charlie Watts, Ginger Baker, or John Bonham, but he's just about as well-known, owing to his longevity and the durability of the Kinks and their sound.
