"Maybe there were too many ideas"
Davies: Kinks Reunion Possible
"Maybe there were too many ideas," reflects Dave on
the infighting. "That was the cause of a lot of emotional
creative pressure. There was just too much to deal with. I wanted
to do this and Ray had his ideas and a lot of it was just bumping
heads with too many ideas. But I think it worked at its best when
it was complementary, when there was a fusion of our ideas. I
think that's when it all worked the best, when it all came
together in these peaks like 'Come Dancing' and 'All Day And All
Of The Night;' there were these peaks between. You know, we've
been talking about doing something. We're not sure exactly what. I
think we're going to do something but we just need to define the
details a little bit. It would be nice."
E.C.: Do you think the Kinks will ever do a reunion tour?
Dave: It would be nice, I know
that Pete is a little unwell, but he is fit. I think it would be
nice to do something…when you consider that the original Kinks
lineup are still alive.

"So with everybody's
creative and emotional heads back in the right place these days,
is there any chance of a Kinks reunion? 'Noooo,' declares Davies
with a strenuous shake of the head. Sucks, man. I hate that whole
reunion/comeback thing - "Hey hey, we're the Monkees..."
No disrespect to The Monkees, but... Ugh! I'm really enjoying my
solo thing, and I've got a band that I really like, so that's all
going great. I'd like us maybe to get together in the studio and
make an album, or at least me and Ray as The Kinks. Now, that
would be fun."
