The Kinks Plan 2008 Comeback
The Kinks have vowed to make a comeback this year (08) - but only if two of their bandmembers recover from ill health. Frontman Ray Davies admits the band are in talks about a reunion tour, but any comeback relies on the health of guitarist Dave Davies and bass player Pete Quaife. But Davies, who suffered a stroke in 2004, and Quaife, who is suffering from kidney problems, are said to be keen to make a return to the stage - 12 years after the band split. Davies says, "I spoke to Quaife about a month ago and he dearly wants to make another record with me. "I think Dave's getting better and Mick's (Avory) still playing. It would be great to get back together just to see what musical ideas we had and what would happen."
