As this article points out, how long has it been since the Kinks have been played regularly on classic rock radio, with the exception of Lola or You Really Got Me?
I always thought the Kinks were a pretty cool band, and that aforementioned hit, Lola has to be one of their coolest songs.
Kinks fans may be happy to hear that Ray Davies is releasing a brand-new album entitled Other People’s Lives.
Getting this album completed was something of an ordeal for Davies who was working on it in the midst of a divorce and was battling with his former record company.
Worse yet, he ended up fighting for his life due to serious complications that arose as a result of a gunshot wound to his leg which he suffered at the hand of some low-life mugger while he was in New Orleans mixing the album.
I rather hope he enjoys some great success with this new album after all he’s been through to get it out the door.
