Ray Davies intends to see brother Dave next week to discuss a Kinks reunion. However, Dave recently made some rather negative comments about his brother, calling him an “arsehole” and suggesting that the singer was uninterested in reforming the band, which split in 1996.
Despite the comments, Ray still insists the reunion is imminent. “I’m seeing Dave next week,” he told Rolling Stone. “I hear that Dave is saying stuff in the press like, ‘I’ll do it, but Ray doesn’t want to do it.’ This is me saying, ‘Ray will do it if Dave does it.’”
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the plan actually goes through this time. A Kinks reunion has been discussed in the past to no avail. But when it comes to a band we’d love to see reunited, we have to hope.
