You know how sometimes you come up with an idea that sounds good, but then you think it through and realize that it’s probably not feasible? It seems like that’s what’s happened with Kinks leader Ray Davies lately.
A few months ago, Davies hinted at a Kinks reunion when he told England’s Sunday Times that the band’s members have resolved their many differences. Many may have interpreted that statement to mean that Davies and his brother/bandmate Dave Davies are now getting along.
But now it seems like it’s another conflict that is preventing the reunion from happening. Ray cites the bad blood between Dave and drummer Mick Avory as the reason why the band may not get back together.
“I really can’t play with my brother as that name, the Kinks, and not have Mick in,” Ray Davies told England’s Telegraph. “Mick will work with him but Dave doesn’t want to work with Mick. Sibling rivalry is nothing on their rivalry. I have no idea what’s wrong with them.”
The Telegraph then asked whether this conflict is insuperable.
