Update: Dave Davies Talks Kinks Reunion

LONDON - NOVEMBER 16: (L-R) The Kinks band members Ray Davies, Mick Avory, Dave Davies and Peter Quaife pose backstage with the award for their induction into the UK Music Hall Of Fame 2005, the culmination of the two-week Channel 4 series looking at 1950's-1990's popular music, at Alexandra Palace on November 16, 2005 in London, England. Acts are selected by a panel of over 60 artists, journalists, broadcasters and executives, with artists including Alanis Morissette, The Pretenders and Slash paying tribute to their fellow musical artists at the event.

UPDATE: 06/11/2014 1:30 PM - Dave Davies has responded to the Kinks reunion remors on his Facebook page stating, "I met and talked with Ray but nothing has been agreed on yet."


Here's hoping talks between the Davies brothers go smoothly and don't turn into one of their famous fights!

Nothing official has been announced, but many members of the British press have been reporting that not only will The Kinks be reuniting, but a new album will also be on the way.

U.K.’s The Sunday Times was the first to report on the pending reunion stating that brothers Ray and Dave Davies have been meeting and preparing to write new songs together.

The Davies Brothers have been feuding for quite some time, but U.K.’s The Telegraph says that a big reason Ray and Dave have been able to put past arguments aside was because of the success of the Kinks musical, Sunny Afternoon, which has been a hit at London’s Hampstead Theatre.

I’m sure if fans knew that Sunny Afternoon would lead to a Kinks reunion, they would have clamored for one sooner!  Here’s hoping a few U.S. appearances are planned for this reunion…and by “few” I mean “a full tour.”
