ray 385 Audio: A Kinky Khristmas    Backstage With Ray Davies

Ray Davies

[photogallerylink id=52763 align=left]There might be a [lastfm]Kinks[/lastfm] reunion. Kinda. For one thing, Pete Quaif, the original bass player, died last summer, and Dave Davies, Ray’s brother and lead guitarist, said a modern day Kinks would be like a bad remake of Night Of The Living Dead. Ouch. There’s always some Kontroversy when you try to get those brothers together. But [lastfm]Ray Davies[/lastfm] remains optimistic. He’s been talking about a possible reunion for over a year now, and he said they will do it without Dave if they have to. Kinda Kinks. Half, maybe.

But next month Ray is releasing See My Friends, where Ray revisits Kinks songs joined by special guests. For example: Better Things with Bruce Springsteen. Waterloo Sunset with Jackson Browne. Till The End Of The Day with Alex Chilton. See My Friends with Spoon. All Day And All Of The Night with Billy Corgan. And other guests include Mumford and Sons, Metallica, Lucinda Williams and Black Francis. That will be released April 5th. And we’ll keep you posted on the possible Kinks reunion. Kinda excited.

    Always good to receive news about The Kinks. Ray Davies is a very unrated writer. And The Kinks live shows were some of the best shows I have ever seen. Cross your fingers that they hook up and do a tour.
