Quaife quit the Kinks in 1969 before going on to form his own band a few months later but
Mapleoak never came close to achieving the success his former outfit enjoyed.
Quoted at the time as being unhappy with life in the Kinks, partly because of the tensions between brothers Ray and Dave Davies, Quaife ended his five-year stint in the band only to return for a one-off reunion show in Canada in 1981.
A fully-fledged reunion was mooted at the time but never came to fruition.
However it wasn't all negative for Quaife during his Kinks tenure. The highlight came with the recording of the 1968 'Village Green Preservation' album. Speaking to Jukebox magazine in 2006 the bassist recalled, "Making that album was the high point of my career. For me it represents the only real album made by the Kinks ... in which we all contributed something."
