Rock and roll legend Ray Davies joined family, friends and fans of his former bandmate Peter Quaife at the unveiling of a commemorative plaque for the co-founder of The Kinks.

Peter Quaife, who played bass guitar in the British Invasion band during its 1960’s heyday, died last year aged just 66.

In tribute to the musician, a blue plaque has been put up at his old school Fortismere, in Tetherdown, Muswell Hill, where he met fellow guitarists and future bandmates Ray and Dave Davies

His brother, David Quaife, said: “This is great recognition of Peter not only for being founding member of The Kinks and ushering in a new breed of music, but also as a brilliant author.”
