The Kinks were one of my all time favorite members of the British Invasion. I thought they were better that the Stones at the time. And though for years a reunion has always been rumored Ray Davies couldn't talk to his brother Dave, the other founder of the Kinks. They wouldn't talk. Well now that has changed. "According to an interview with The Sunday Times, Ray Davies says he and his brother have finally met in person to discuss a Kinks reunion.“I met Dave only last week to talk about getting back together again,” he said. “We've also spoken a few times on the phone and emailed. He's been composing his own songs, but I'd really like to write with him again. We both agree we don't want to do old stuff or tour with past hits. It's got to be something new.” " Earlier this year, Ray, Dave, and the band's original drummer Mick Avory said that a reunion was "close" to happening, though Dave added, “I don't want to see the legacy of the Kinks soured by two miserable old men doing it for the money.”
