BBC News reports that Ray Davies is keen for a Kinks reunion as long as they “could do new songs, even if it’s four or five”:
“My pitch to the other guys in the band – because I’m really for it – was what would we have written if we hadn’t have had our first hit, You Really Got Me?” he said.
“What if we put ourselves in that situation, what would have happened? So I think new work is important for artists as they mature and get older.
“The amazing thing is that The Kinks are the only band, of that period, where the only original members are still alive,” he added.
Who knows? With the band’s history, it might be a great show, might be a disaster, might just be a bore…
