We may be a bit closer to a Kinks reunion than we were a few days ago.
Earlier this week, we reported that UK music magazine MOJO quoted Kinks frontman Ray Davies as saying that the band would reunite in 2015, with or without the involvement of his brother, guitarist Dave Davies. When asked if it would truly be the Kinks without Dave, MOJO quoted Ray as saying, “Yes, it would. I think it’s all down to the music. If somebody can’t or won’t play, there are other players out there. [Drummer] Mick [Avory] and I want to do it.”
But the Kinks’ official Facebook page soon posted a message of their own, saying, “MOJO is wrong. There will be NO Kinks reunion without BOTH Ray and Dave Davies. Ray Davies claims to have never said this.”
All of this would lead one to perhaps believe that Dave Davies is, for some reason, not interested in a Kinks reunion. As it turns out, that’s not so: yesterday Dave posted a short note to his Facebook page: “I would love to do some form of a Kinks reunion with Ray. – Dave.”
