Dave Davies says he is ‘optimistic’ about a Kinks reunion

Dave Davies has revealed that he is “optimistic” about a Kinks reunion in the near future.

In a new interview with The Independent, Davies said he is hopeful the band will be able to get back together in time for the 60th anniversary of their hit song “You Really Got Me” (1964) in two years’ time. Although the group never formally broke up, brothers Dave and Ray had a rocky relationship over the years.

When asked about the possibility of a reunion with his brother Ray, he said: “I hope so! I hope so. Ray and I have talked about it: it’s possible!”.

Dave said their relationship had improved after years of tough sibling rivalry. “We get along well,” he told the publication. “We’re talking about football. We’re Arsenal fans from birth… So, yes, I’m optimistic about the future.”

The brothers performed together for the first time in almost 20 years in 2015, when Ray joined Dave on stage in London for a performance of ‘You Really Got Me’.

Last week, Dave released his autobiography, Living On A Thin Line.

The guitarist says the book will “revisit the glory days of the band that produced so much extraordinary music, and had such a profound influence on bands from The Clash and Van Halen to Oasis and Blur.”

“Filled with stories about the ups and downs of his relationship with his brother Ray, as well as encounters with the likes of John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix, this book will be a glorious read for Kinks fans and anyone who wants to read about it. it.” the heyday of rock n’ roll,” says the synopsis for Living On A Thin Line.

In a statement about the book, Dave said: “I’ve laughed, and shed a few tears, thinking back on the six decades that have passed since The Kinks had their first hit in 1964 with ‘You Really Got Me’.

“Here are the ups and downs of my life with The Kinks and what happened next. Get ready to be amazed and, hopefully, surprised.”

Last year, The Kinks hosted a live event called The Moneygoround, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their album “Lola Versus Powerman And The Moneygoround, Part One”.

“The Moneygoround is a one-man show documenting a character facing the difficult circumstances of making an album under extreme pressure,” Ray said in a statement at the time.

“This psycho-drama-like piece follows the character’s progress as he grapples with the events of his life. He confronts the dark forces around him after falling into an emotional and financial ‘hole’, and in the end a song saves him after he trusts her. friend, Lola”.
