Like several others of his generation Bob Henrit began musical life in a skiffle group. His ex-next door neighbour, Cliff Richard, helped get him a gig with Adam Faith’s Roulettes and not long after he played on the Unit 4 + 2 hit ‘Concrete and Clay’. Bob recorded with various punk bands as well as Leo Sayer, Russ Ballard, Ringo Starr and Roger Daltrey. While touring and also recording with Ian Mathews, Mike Rutherford, Richie Havens and Don McLean he opened his Drumstore in London. Having played on albums for Dave Davies he came to Ray Davies’ notice who invited him into the Kinks, later they entered the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and he received an ‘Ivor Novello Award’. These days he responds to the telephone for gigs with Russ Ballard and various pals from Argent and the Kinks.
