All the Kinks were Arsenal..
KOK : How did you initially get the job as replacement for Pete Quaife?
JD(John Dalton) : The Kinks were with an agent called Arthur Howes. Their top booker was a guy called Bill Fowler, who was a friend of mine, and also used to be The Mark Four’s road manager. When Pete was injured on his scooter, Bill was given the job of finding a quick replacement, it took him a few hours to talk me into at least going for an interview. The interview was on June 9 1966, at Carling Music, Savile Row.
I can’t remember having to play much, I think they just wanted me to look all right... and be an Arsenal supporter.
