Will There Be a Reunion of The Kinks in 2014?

It’s possible.  Ray and Dave Davies seem to have made up and drummer Mick Avory seems to be into it.

Things are looking up if this article in Uncut is anything to go by:

All three are mainly positive about the potential reformation, with Ray Davies stating: “It’s as close as it’s ever been to happening.”“I said to Ray I thought that it’d be a great shame if we don’t try and do something,” says guitarist Dave Davies. “I don’t think our love has diminished. I think the stage-play has played itself out a bit, the pretence and the acting. I think it’s time reality took over, and started directing the last years of… whatever it is. It’s like Cain and Abel.”

“I think it would be nice to do something all together,” says original drummer Mick Avory, who left the band in 1984. “Because the chances are diminishing as we talk. Hopefully me, Dave and Ray can meet before it happens. We’d have to knock our heads together and rehearse, if we meant to do it properly. We haven’t played together for God knows how long.”

I’ve never seen the Kinks live.  Maybe we’ll get our chance after all.

    Love the Kinks. Had the good opportunity to see them in the early 80s. Would go for sure.
