Kinks Reunion?

L - O - L - A, Lola, La La La Looooooooooo La.

Ok, I know that's just one of many classics by the Kinks but I have always just loved that song because of its quirkiness and the fun tune.

According to Dave White at About Rock, there is a chance that the ORIGINAL line-up may do a reunion tour (why not everyone else and their cousin is doing it!)

Check this out:

We're talking about the original lineup of The Kinks, dating back to the band's beginnings in 1963: Ray Davies, his brother Dave on guitar and harmony vocals, drummer Mick Avory and bassist Pete Quaife. That lineup hasn't performed together since Quaife left the band in 1969. Avory left in 1984, and the Davies brothers continued to perform with a frequently changing lineup until 1996.

Well I'm sure they won't sound like the energetic Kinks of old, but I would love to see them. Of course if the price is right...

I thought Ray and Dave were still feuding with each other. Oh well, I guess the need for money trumps everything. Just ask Don Dokken and George Lynch.

I am skeptical based upon the relationship between Ray and Dave...and also question the amount of energy that will be on stage

Barbara said...

Jeff, yeah true.

Bruce - I don't understand how brothers can feud. But you're right, they probably want some cash before its too late.

Bond, it will prove to be interesting if it happens.

They lost the energy when they were on good terms -- what makes anyone think they're going to be rejuvenated now? Maybe a big paycheck, but I doubt it.
