Remember Pete Quaife

Who? Well, his name may not ring bells like Ray Davies, but Pete Quaife (far left in photo above) was the bassist on all of the '60s-era Kinks tunes. Think about that: "Waterloo Sunset," "Tired Of Waiting For You" and "The Village Green Preservation Society," just to name a few. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer passed away last week at age 66. Let's take a listen and remember his contributions to one of the all-time great bands.
