Dave Davies releasing new album, touring U.S. (dates)
by Bill Pearis
Dave Davies isn't as well known as his brother Ray, but in addition to being lead guitarist in The Kinks, he wrote and sang a number of their best songs, including "Death of a Clown," "Susannah's Still Alive," "I'm Not Like Everybody Else," and "Funny Face." He also slit-open the speaker in his amp to give the "You Really Got Me" riff its signature fuzzy sound, one of the first hits to do so. He's also led a very interesting life and his 1996 autobiography, Kink, is a real page-turner. You can also watch an edited version of Julien Temple's BBC documentary, Kinkdom Come, below.
A new album, I Will Be Me, and around that time Dave will be in America for a few tour dates backed by L.A. band Jigsaw Seen, including
two three nights at NYC's City Winery on May 28 & 29. Tickets are on sale now.
UPDATE: They've just added a third show on May 27 and tickets will soon be on sale for that one too.
