Sinceya bring up Chrissie.
Dave was more fun to talk to.
But Ray is my fave songwriter.
For my money one of the best songwriters ever...
Dave may have been more of an influence for me.
Ray, brilliant songwriting.
To both of their credit the Kinks remain one of the greatest rock bands of their time despite never really getting the recognition they deserved. Don't judge them only by the big hits (Lola, You Really Got Me, etc.). They have a large catalogue covering an astounding variety of music. Try Village Green Preservation Society: best record you've never heard of.
Gail Davies, one of the greatest singers you've never heard about.
Ray, one of the most thoughtful, clever, and creative story tellers in rock n’ roll history.
Dave, created heavy metal guitar.
They both rule.
They’re kinda indispensable, and indispensable to one another, IMO.
Both are absolutely great at what they do!
Yep, big fan of both. Dave wrote some great songs, too, by the way (Love Me 'Til The Sun Shines, Death of A Clown, Rats, Strangers). He played no-frills, straight ahead rock guitar, and always contributed great harmony vocals. Ray, obviously, is an amazing songwriter and great singer, too.
Many people aren't aware that Ray Davies first came up with the idea for a show on MTV where artists performed live before an audience and told stories about how songs came about......was it called Storytellers?
Love Village Green Preservation Society, but if you are going for the best album you never heard of, I have to nominate Arthur. Victoria was the song everyone knows but the rest of the album is brilliant.
Both together. Get the hell over it and tour already!
Ray + Dave = some of the best two-guitar arrangements of all time, IMO.
Muswell Hillbillies is the jewel in the crown as far as I’m concerned. It’s a master stroke.
Dave Davies. Great guitar over twee lyrics any day.
I read once that Ray used to introduce Dave as "Dave 'death of a clown' Davies" at shows as a slight dig. So... Ray, but damned if I don't love 'strangers.'
