The Kinks co-founder Dave Davies has issued a ‘not-so-fast’ to England’s Telegraph newspaper after a report that the band was ready to reunite.
The Telegraph had reported that Ray and Dave Davies had resolved their differences and were hoping to release new material soon, after a stage musical about their career helped them to reconcile. But Dave Davies has told his Facebook fans, “I met and talked with Ray but nothing has been agreed on yet.”
The source of the reports appears to have been a Daily Mail interview with Ray Davies confirming that he’d been chatting with Dave about the possibility. “I met Dave only last week to talk about getting back together again,” he said. “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. It’s got to be something new.”
