Happy Birthday to Kinks co-founder and lead guitarist Dave Davies who turns 73 today (February 3rd)!!! In 2018 Davies made another deep dive into his personal vaults for the new album Decade, chronicling his unreleased music recorded between 1971 and 1979.
In 2017, Davies released his latest album, titled Open Road, a collaborative venture between him and son Russ Davies. The collection marked Dave's first studio set since 2014's critically acclaimed Rippin' Up Time album. During a recent chat, Dave told us the he and brother Ray Davies had completed a set of demos for the first new Kinks project since the band's last album, 1994's To The Bone.
Back on December 18th, 2015, Ray and Dave Davies finally performed onstage together for the first time since disbanding nearly 20 years previously. Older brother Ray joined Dave and his band at London's London’s Islington Assembly Hall for a runthrough of the Kinks' 1964 breakthrough hit “You Really Got Me.” The following day, Dave posted on Twitter: “We had a great night — it was a fun show — had a blast with Ray.”
