    I guess we still don’t know if Ray and Dave have bridged their differences enough to tour in celebration of 50 years of The Kinks. Maybe for fun they should invite along their class mate and an original band member, Rod Stewart.
    Only saw them once, at the Finsbury Park Rainbow, on a free ticket as they were recording for an American TV show.

      My Dear Hedley,
      I have come to like The Kinks even more as I grow older, but I’m not so sure I’d like them as they are now. I’m leery of groups re-forming and touring. I know it is the trend but age does take a toll.

      Rod Stewart, now that would be interesting.

        Ray tours as a solo artist and in promotion of his recent book and tends to be a bit on the obnoxious side. I do love the material and certainly listen beyond Lola, Waterloo and Come Dancing

        My Dear Hedley,
        I guess from im6’s comment you are being kind about the man though I do believe you about the music.

    “…a BIT on the obnoxious side.” ??? I’d say that’s a BIT of an understatement!

      im6,
      I don’t know him except as a singer so I’ll bow to your knowledge-it is always spot on.

      • Hedley Says:

        Kat, telling im6 that his knowledge is always spot on is comparable to going swimming at Hilton Head while that 12 footer is coming in through the surf (brilliantly oblique Beach Boys reference)

        MDH,
        He does well by me, as you do too, sending me music or introducing me to new artists. He always chooses well.

      Gnu,
      This is a new song and a new group for me. I would never have found this. It fits well with the posted song. I suspect the title might be off-putting for Superman.

      Gnu,
      I watched this every early evening, around 5 o’clock I think. I can still say the intro from memory. It is one of my favorite shows from my childhood.
