There are few relationships at notorious and chaotic as the one between brothers Ray and Dave Davies. It’s complicated at best, but despite all of their ups and downs, there are still rumblings of a potential 50th anniversary Kinks reunion.
According to NME, Ray claims that after meeting up with Dave at a pub last summer, a Kinks reunion is pretty close to reality.
Of course, in a recent interview with U.K.’s The Independent, Dave discussed at length how he finds it more difficult to be around Ray as the years pass, even referring to their relationship as “toxic”, but still says he does deeply care about his brother.
Dave is performing on April 11th in London, which is his first live performance since a near fatal stroke in 2004.
We would love to see The Kinks back together again, even if it’s for a one-off performance. Considering that in 2004, Ray was shot in New Orleans while chasing after two muggers that stole his girlfriend’s purse, the Davies brothers need to realize that life is short, and millions of fans would love to see a reunion.
