The Kinks co-founder Dave Davies has dismissed the story do the rounds this weekend that The Kinks will reform for Glastonbury.
The Sun in the UK, in its usual unconfirmed form, has blabbed that the reunion is on for 2017. The UK rag came to that conclusion after Ray Davies told them “Dave and I will definitely work together again. And we want to play live.”
The tabloid claims Ray also added, “Maybe The Kinks could play Glastonbury?”
Dave Davies was quick to hose the story down.
“ME AND RAY have not spoken about Kinks showS at all- although weRE TRYING TO WORK TOGETHER ON OTHER STUFF and have worked on music together . In the meantime we both have albums finished. My album Open Road I did with my son Russ comes out in 2017.”
