Subject:Leaving the Kinks in 1984
 Mick, What was the reason that you left the Kinks in 1984 after more than 20 years. Suddenly you were replaced by Bob Henrit and I have always wondered why. Was it your own choise or for another reason. best wishes, Gabe

 Which drummers influenced your playing? When did you start playing drums? Do you still play or practice when away from the Kast Off Kinks?

Subject:Mick and Jim and me with Johnny Roagan
 Hi, you may remember me from Hoddesdon Conservative club where you played at numerous beer festivals. You also played at my surprise 40th birthday party there too. Just to say i am the tall blonde fat bloke who Mick very kindly let me play on his drums. I have since moved to north devon and have played drums in several bands down here. The live band arena down here is great and it is a pity you guys only get as far as Dorset. If either of you fancy a break in an out of the way north devon coastal village let me know and i will be only too pleased to put you up and keep you in beer. You have absolutley no end of fans down here who are envious of my knowing, meeting and playing with you. Dont worry where i live even the sea gulls have their own privacy so you wont be bothered other than by big busted wenches serving cool beer! Anyway just wanted to touch base and to see if you remember this large chap from good old Hoddesdon. Take care and all the best Dave

Subject:Berlin 1965
 I have been reading a book on the Kinks and I was surprised that a gig in summer of 1965 in an open-air park in Berlin was not mentioned. I was the drummer with Screaming Lord Sutch and I played your kit,which I think was a Gretsch. Sutch told me that he had arranged it with yourselves for me to use your drum kit,but I doubted this at the time! I look forward to seeing the band at The Cavern later this year,maybe speak to you then. Regards, Mike Holmes
