Ray Davies has denied plans to reunite the Kinks “with or without” Dave Davies. He has accused Mojo magazine of fabricating a quote about touring without his brother in 2015.
“Mojo is wrong,” the Kinks have written on their Facebook page. “There will be NO Kinks reunion without BOTH Ray and Dave Davies. Ray Davies claims to have never said this.”
The Kinks’ statement resulted from an interview Mojo published in October, in which Ray Davies allegedly promised that the Kinks would tour in 2015.
“Dave’s invited to the party, but if he doesn’t want to do it, [the reunion] will happen anyway,” he was quoted as saying. “I’d much rather work with him than without him … If somebody can’t or won’t play, there are other players out there.”
