Bob Henrit was originally the drummer with Buster Meikle & the Day Breakers, together with Russ Ballard on guitar and Roy Ballard, Russ's older brother, on piano. He then enjoyed initial success as a member of the Roulettes (1962–1967), who, in addition to a recording career of their own, backed the popular music singer, Adam Faith, on tour and on record. After the demise of the Roulettes, Henrit briefly (1968) worked with Unit 4 + 2, an association which went back to his session drumming on their biggest hit, "Concrete and Clay" (1965).

In late 1968, Henrit teamed up with Russ Ballard, Jim Rodford and Rod Argent to form Argent, and remained with them until the band ended in 1976. After a brief spell with Rodford and John Verity as Phoenix, Henrit's post-Argent career included work with a number of artists, including Charlie, after their 1978 tour opening for The Kinks, and Ian Matthews.

As a session drummer, he worked with the Who vocalist, Roger Daltrey, and was present on Dave Davies' Glamour (1981) and Chosen People (1983) solo albums. He also worked regularly with the GB Blues Band which, in addition to Rodford, included former members of the Mike Cotton Sound. In a 1972 interview, Keith Moon identified Henrit as one of his favourite drummers.
