Another name quite familiar to classic rock fans might be appearing in the news soon as the Kinks are said to be considering a reunion tour sometime this year.
According to U.K. newspaper Daily Mail, frontman Ray Davies has hinted strongly that the group has plans for a "full reunion" sometime this year. Despite health problems that have plagued both Dave Davies and Peter Quaife, Davies reports they are both willing to get together.
There’s also some talk of a new album with Davies being quoted as saying: "I spoke to Quaife about a month ago and he dearly wants to make another record with me."
As a solo artist, Davies reports that he missing being part of a band, and particularly the "the interactive stuff."
When I think of the Kinks, the first thing that comes to mind is their hit song "Lola," probably because of its unusual subject matter. They are also well-known for "You Really Got Me," which I think just about everyone on Planet Earth has heard at least once in their life.
Any reunion for the group is likely to be planned to kick off around the time a new Kinks box set titled "Retrospective" is released.
