HEY GID, THAT KINKS REUNION MIGHT HAPPEN AFTER ALL
Found this online somewhere, news about the possibility of a full-on Kinks reunion. Was talking to an old pal from high school who is the biggest Kinks fan I know and swore to him this would never happen considering guitarist Dave Davies' stroke and all. But it seems like he will be on the mend. There is talk of a new album too! Let's just hope the new material is more Percy than Phobia, shall we? -Ed.
Rock Legends The Kinks Moving Closer To Reunion
Legendary British rock band The Kinks have taken a step closer to a reunion - frontman Ray Davies' brother Dave is back on his feet after a long illness. The 60s rockers are keen to reunite for live gigs and to record new material, but Davies revealed last month that they were only "three quarters of the way" towards their dream because Dave Davies still feels the effects of a stroke he suffered in 2004.
But the "You Really Got Me" hitmakers are now eyeing up a series of gigs next year - because their ailing guitarist is on the mend.
Ray Davies says, "Dave seems very chipper and on good form. He's moving well and has made good progress. My thought is we'll do it (the reunion)."
