Dave Davies Says No Kinks Reunion Under His Watch

    It must suck having to be one of the Davies brothers; no matter what you’re doing–eating dinner, making new music, using a urinal, or leaving his house–all people want to know is if you’re going to reunite the Kinks. But Dave Davies has had enough. In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, he said he will never be involved in a Kinks reunion, mostly because his brother Ray is a total dick:

    “You’ve heard of vampires. Well, Ray sucks me dry of ideas, emotions and creativity. It’s toxic for me to be with him. He’s a control freak… The last time we were all together was at my 50th birthday party. Ray had the money and I didn’t, so he offered to throw it for me. Just as I was about to cut the cake, Ray jumped on the table and made a speech about how wonderful he was. He then stamped on the cake. “I think the music is so beautiful it shouldn’t be tainted. It would be a shame. You don’t need to see silly old men in wheelchairs singing You Really Got Me.”

    If that part about the cake is true, then there is no doubt things are more gully between the Davies brothers than the Gallagher brothers. No debate. [Classic Rock Magazine via Daily Swarm]
