Mike Avory is probably best known as drummer with The Kinks. However, he also played drums with The Rolling Stones for a while during their early days in 1962 (like Carlo Little), until Charlie Watts became The Stones' regular skinsman.
In 1971 Keith Richards recalled: "We [The Stones] were rehearsing drummers. Mick Avory came by, the drummer of the Kinks. He was terrible, then. Couldn't find that off beat. Couldn't pick up on that Jimmy Reed stuff."
