Earlier this week, for a brief moment, Kinks fans had their hopes raised for a reunion… sort of.
We may be a bit closer to a Kinks reunion than we were a few days ago.
“I met Dave only last week to talk about getting back together again,” Ray Davies told the Sunday Times.
“It’s as close as it’s ever been to happening,” said Ray Davies.
Dave, as has been widely reported, suffered a stroke in 2004, and had to learn to walk, talk and play guitar again. Happily, he’s quite active these days, promoting his latest solo album, I Will Be Me, released over the summer. He’s been touring to support the record and filming a documentary on his life, Dave Davies’ Rock N Roll Journey.
In a recent interview, Dave Davies said that to honor the 50th anniversary of their debut, the band might actually reunite for a tour. But we’ve all heard that before.
