From Rolling Stone:
Pete Quaife, the original bassist in the Kinks who played with the British Invasion band from their formation in 1961 through 1969, has died, according to a source close to the band. He was 66. The exact cause of death is unknown, but he had been undergoing kidney dialysis for over a decade. Quaife played on all of the early Kinks classics, including “You Really Got Me,” “All Day and All of the Night,” “Dedicated Follower of Fashion” and “Waterloo Sunset,” which also features his background vocals.
