The Kinks are a well-known English rock band with each member adding something special to their music. But, besides their music, how much money do these band members have in 2023? Let’s take a look at their individual net worths to find out.
Ray Davies’ Net Worth
At the top of the wealth list is lead singer and chief songwriter Ray Davies. Born in 1944 in London, he was the seventh of eight children. His early interest in music led him to form The Kinks with his younger brother Dave.
Notably, Davies guided The Kinks through two peaks of success before the band disbanded in 1996. His life off stage was equally eventful, marrying four times and fathering four daughters. As of 2023, Davies’ net worth is estimated at $12 million.
Dave Davies’ Net Worth
Just like his older brother, Dave was born on June 21, 1944. His career has been quite illustrious, from performing with The Kinks to launching a solo career in the ’90s. Not to mention, he was awarded by Queen Elizabeth II in 2004 for his contribution to music. Dave has seven children from two relationships and was married once.
Trailing Ray in terms of net worth, Dave Davies’ estimated fortune stands at $3.5 million.
Mick Avory’s Net Worth
Mick Avory, the man who kept the beat for The Kinks, is next on the list. Born in 1944, Avory started his music career in pubs and joined The Kinks as a replacement drummer in 1964. His drumming skills earned him a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the UK Music Hall of Fame 15 years later. Avory’s net worth is estimated at $2 million.
Pete Quaife’s Net Worth
Last on our list, but certainly not least in terms of talent, is Pete Quaife. As one of the co-founders of The Kinks, Quaife had an integral part in their rise to fame. Before his death in 2010, he had been receiving kidney dialysis for over a decade.
At the time of his death, Quaife’s net worth was estimated to be between $1 and $5 million. A part of his legacy lives on in his posthumously published book, ‘Veritas, Volume I,‘ which recounts a fictional 1960s band’s story based on his experiences with The Kinks.
