Rodford joined The Kinks in 1978, touring with the group and playing on its later albums. Ray Davies, The Kinks' co-founder, tweeted that Rodford was "an integral part of the Kinks later years."

Argent also highlighted Rodford's commitment to music in St Albans, north of London, where he lived his entire life.
