1 0 0

The Kinks have paid tribute to former bandmate Ian Gibbons following his death at the age of 67.

Keyboardist Ian, who was in the rock group on and off from 1979 until 1996, died on Thursday.

Sir Ray Davies said in a statement: “To simply say Ian will be missed would be an understatement. My first thoughts are for his family and loved ones.”

Dave Davies added: “Apart from being a great professional, Ian always had a positive attitude to being on the road and recording.

“In the many years he worked with The Kinks, he added great colour and dimension to The Kinks’ music and he was a good friend.

“I’ll miss him greatly. Lots of love to his family and friends at this difficult time.”

He also posted a vintage picture of the band on Instagram:
