Happy birthday, Mick Avory!!!
I wish I had finished that digital painting I was working on in time for today, but I got distracted. Hopefully at some point this month I’ll get it done.
"As for fame and fortune, no one imagined it was going to develop into the world famous band it later became. Actually, my first impression was that they were gay, so I didn’t have a high expectation pulling birds."
Happy Birthday to, the incredibly talented extremely underrated,

Happy Birthday, Mick Avory! ♥
"I was a teenager when we had our first hit "You Really Got Me", in 1964, a wild and angry kid who suddenly had more money than i’d ever seen before, and an abundance of women and drugs at my disposal, I was sure that the party would end any moment, and I wanted to live it up while I could"
Happy Birthday Dave Davies - February 3, 1947
What was the single most high point and what was your single, extreme low point with the band?
"The morning after You Really Got Me hit number one, I woke up and lay in bed. I looked down at my feet and noticed a hole in the toe of my sock. At that moment I realized that I should be celebrating the moment with French chefs waiting on me and things like that. Not worrying about a hole in the toe of my sock. That was my high point. As for the low points, let’s just say there were too damn many."
Happy Birthday Peter Alexander Greenlaw Quaife! A superbly talented and underrated musician. A beautiful person inside and out with an unmatched unique personality and peaceful demeanor that we’ll never forget. 12/31/43 ∞
