Dave Davies Doesn't Rule Out Kinks Reunion

(Gibson) It seems there is still a possibility of a Kinks reunion. Guitarist Dave Davies, when asked by Music-News.com about the possibility of the Kinks reforming, said: "I don't see much of Mick [Avory] these days but I see Ray [Davies] from time to time. There are no definite plans but nothing is definitely ruled out."

Drummer Avory and the Davies brothers are the only original Kinks remaining, following the death of bassist Pete Quaife last year. In the interview, Dave also talked about the legendary British band's early days and his revolutionary guitar sound.

"Next door to the studio there was a radio spares shop and they had this little amp and speaker combo, a green Elpico in the window," he said. "I plugged the Elpico into the inputs of my AC30 using the Elpico as a sort of pre-amp and it sounded great but I still wasn't satisfied. The speaker was in an open frame and I took a razor blade and slashed the speaker cone and now it gave me a distorted and jagged sound I started using that in the live shows that I performed with the band and that was the sound we used on 'You Really Got Me.' That sound was really important to us as it opened the door for many other forms and allowed us to experiment more." more on this story
