Kinks’ Dave Davies denies reunion rumours

'Ray and I haven't spoken in over six months' he says

The KinksDave Davies has released a statement to counteract rumours that the band may reform following comments by his brother and ex-bandmate Ray Davies.

Dave, who was a founding member of The Kinks over 40 years ago says there are no plans to reunite now, or in the immediate future.

“To be honest, Ray and I haven’t even spoken in over six months,” he says ”So not only hasn’t a tour been planned, it hasn’t even been discussed. I am focused on my solo career right now and that’s all I’m concerned with at the moment.”

Having suffered a stroke almost four years ago, Dave has since recovered and recorded a solo album entitled ‘Fractured Mindz’.

“Having a stroke was a life-changing experience,” he says “and this album is what came out of it.”

Dave plans to tour the album and is currently working on a DVD entitled ‘Mystical Journey’ which traces his life. Part one will be released this year.
