Ray Davies (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Dave Davies (lead guitar, vocals) remained the only original members during the group’s 32-year career. The other two founding members, Peter Quaife (bass, vocals) and Mick Avory (drums, percussion) were replaced respectively by John Dalton in 1969 and Bob Henrit in 1984.

Dalton was in turn replaced by Jim Rodford in 1978. Keyboardist Nicky Hopkins accompanied the band during its sessions of recording in the middle of the decade of 1960. Later several keyboardists, including John Gosling and Ian Gibbons, became official members.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
