February 15

Been a while since I featured a sideman, so let's wish Happy Birthday to Mick Avory, the most important member of the Kinks whose last name wasn't Davies. He was the Kinks' drummer from '64-'84, providing the beat on their most critically acclaimed works, and sticking with them through their most turbulent decades. His acrimony with Dave Davies also provided some classic rock n' roll fights. Nowadays, he manages Konk Studios where the Kinks' members had and continue to record their songs. He also plays with the occasional legacy supergroup (such as The Kast Off Kinks.)
Here's some vintage Kinks:
