to be or not to be an individual
"I think there's a danger that musical aspirations might get trapped in a bubble of mass media acceptance. It's the desire to be on TV over the fact that you want to say something and be an individual. I think if it's accepted that it's just a popular TV show ['The X Factor' in England and 'American Idol' in America] that's fine. I'd like to think that there are young musicians growing up and evolving all over the world, that they're not influenced by it and are just going to do their thing."

From Ray Davies webpage: 23rd Nov '10
 - Ray Davies' North American tour cancelled.

Ray did not personally cancel the American dates but was ordered by his doctors not to fly or embark on the accompanying ground travel for the forthcoming four US dates until his medical condition has stabilized to their satisfaction. The doctors could not provide a time frame for this and advised Ray to cancel the dates.

Ray would like to thank all his fans for their continued support and asks that everyone respect his privacy so he can concentrate on a swift recovery.

Ray Davies:

Because so many people were unable to make the trip to Denmark for Pete's funeral, Mick and myself have spoken and decided to put on a memorial night for Pete in Muswell Hill were the Kinks first formed.

We are currently talking with others and looking into venues
and will hopefully announce information soon

Here is a summery of a e-mail from Petes brother David:
from David Quaife - Petes donations:

I have received many emails and telephone calls by very kind people
wishing to donate to Pete’s memorial donations.

The donations will be used firstly for Pete’s funeral costs, wake and gravestone.

We are expecting a considerable amount of mourners.

As Pete’s partner Elisabeth will be excluded from any inheritance (not married)
 I think it also appropriate to donate an amount to lessen her burdens she will undergo from losing Pete - her sweetheart and loved one for many years.

Elisabeth has supported Pete through many a difficult times, not the least the special care and love she gave Pete with his regular dialysis sessions 3 times a week, and the loving, nursing care during the last days of dear Pete’s life.

The monies over will be donated to an applicable,
 registered Dialysis research fund.

Yours Aye,

David Quaife

Danish Kroners
US Dollars
UK Pounds
Japenese Yen

The donations will be paid direct into PayPal and then transferred to:-

Nordea Bank

Stubbekøbing branch

Dave Davies' statement from his Message Board

NME Festival Guide June 27, 2010 : Ray Davies pays tribute to late Kinks bassist Pete Quaife at Glastonbury

Songwriting legend is also joined by a choir on the Pyramid Stage
The Kinks' frontman Ray Davies paid tribute to the band's recently deceased bassist Pete Quaife during his Glastonbury set on the Pyramid Stage today (June 27).

The veteran star dedicated
The Kinks' classic 'See My Friends' to his old bandmate, and later played two tracks from what Quaife claimed was his favourite Kinks album, 1968's 'The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society'.

Speaking about his old friend, who died of kidney failure last week (June 23) aged 66, Davies told the crowd, "I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for him."   LINK

Rest In Peace Pete

Lloyd and Rob visited Kinks London and one of the many places we visited was Pete's home in Muswell Hill and the school he, Ray and Dave attended. This is an excerpt from Two For The Road.

On Thursday I was very busy, taking care of my family and finishing a recording session, when I saw very briefly that Pete Quaife of the Kinks had died. I didn't have time to process it until I was performing at my regular Thursday night sunset show in Hawaii Kai. I sang a couple of songs in his honor, and managed to capture it with a Flip that was in my music bag.

Ray Davies is 66 on the 21/6 2010
