“Congratulations to Mick Avory and Marliesa on their wedding today!” Christian wrote.

The 73-year-old Avory played with The Kinks from the band’s formation in 1964 until 1984, and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with the group in 1990.

In recent years, Avory has performed with The Kast Off Kinks, a band featuring several former Kinks members that plays regular club shows around the U.K. The group’s next gig is scheduled for January 26 at the Arlington Arts Centre in Newbury.
