The Kinks' Ray And Dave Davies Reunite On Stage

(Radio.com) Father Christmas came a little bit early this year for fans of The Kinks, and what he brought wasn't "some money," as the lyrics to the band's classic yuletide jam goes. Instead, he delivered the band's principal members, singer/songwriter/leader Ray Davies and guitarist Dave Davies together on stage, for the first time in nearly two decades.

At Dave's concert at the Islington Assembly Hall in London earlier tonight (December 18), Ray shocked the audience by appearing on stage with his younger brother for a take through the Kinks' earth-shaking, game-changng classic, "You Really Got Me."

The brothers and bandmates have had a famously rough relationship, and haven't performed together since the Kinks played their last show at Norwegian Wood in Oslo, Norway, in June of 1996. Both brothers have, on occasion, expressed interest in a reunion. So tonight's performance will surely lead fans to believe that the Kinks will, at long last, get back together in 2016.
