The Kinks discuss latest reunion plans

The Kinks appear to be close to reuniting, according to Ray Davies in a new interview in The Sunday Times yesterday [June 8]. Speaking about the possibility of reuniting with his brother, Dave, Ray Davies confirmed, “I met Dave only last week to talk about getting back together again." “We’ve also spoken a few times on the phone and emailed. He’s been composing his own songs, but I’d really like to write with him again.” “We both agree we don’t want to do old stuff or tour with past hits,” continued Davies. “It’s got to be something new.”
