The Kinks Hint at Possible Reunion
By Brian Ives
In an interview with England’s Sunday Times (via The Telegraph) Ray Davies said that the Kinks could reunite for an album and a tour, as the members (mainly Ray and his brother Dave Davies) have resolved their many differences.
There has been rumblings of a Kinks reunion for years, but things picked up steam earlier this year when the Davies brothers and founding Kinks drummer Mick Avory told British magazine Uncut that they were considering a reunion.
The group seem to have reconciled, at least in part, over the British musical Sunny Afternoon, which chronicled the Kinks’ rise to the top of the charts in 1964. Ray told the Sunday Times that “I met Dave only last week to talk about getting back together again. We’ve also spoken a few times on the phone and emailed. He’s been composing his own songs, but I’d really like to write with him again. We both agree we don’t want to do old stuff or tour with past hits. It’s got to be something new.”
