Kinks, Dave Davies

Dave Davies is the younger brother of Ray Davies of the rock band the Kinks.

Dave Davies website describes his autobiography as a cult.

It is an fascinating and incredibly honest read.
I do part company with his over his use of psychic powers and messages form UFO's :-O   but if you want a very good account of life in a  rock band and his complex relationship with his brother and other people, this is a very good book.

I think it is right to say that Dave has and will be over shadowed by his brother, but that his contribution to the music of the Kinks has been very undervalued.

Interesting for me, Dave is a fan of Tony Hancock and recently attended the Tony Hancock Appreciation Society Dinner as a guest speaker.
