Special on the Sky Arts ch 14.00 tomorrow. Sounds good.
I haven't got Sky Arts but I will say the man's a genius.
Do yo uwant to buy my Kinks albums?
Why would people "buy" albums these days?
Ray Davies is probably the greatest British songwriter.
I beg to differ. He has written about 10 classics whilst Pete Townshend, from the same era, wrote 40 classics.
This is on at 20.00 tonight and 14.00 and 19.00 tomorrow.
Some good songs but an arrogant and bitter man I think.
the husband of my wifes godmother, was the kinks manager
he refers to RD as the biggest waste of talent ever, more talented than jagger etc,
I beg to differ. The songs of the Kinks are so much better than The Who. They are more subtle, more interesting and better.(IMHO of course)
I see he's been chosen to curate this year's 'Meltdown' festival in London. Some interesting shows!
John Cooper Clarke and John Otway/Wild Willy Barret. English art at it's best
Love Otway and Barrett seen them live several times great craic.
I've seen them (and Otway on his own) a canny few times. He is what makes this country great
Different class musically and humour wise.
I was back in the UK last year, for a match, and he was on at my old club, Rock City Nottingham, I'd seen him loads of times in the 70's and 80's and was a bit wary of seeing him in case it spoiled the memories.
No need to worry.
He was mint and came for a drink in the bar with us afterwards.
A really decent bloke and has had a very interesting life.
