I've written a bit lately about rumors of a Kinks reunion.

Well, in a recent Rolling Stone story, Ray Davies kind of said that, after two solo albums, he has nothing more to say, and that he misses being part of a band. He said that he wouldn't want to tour without any new music though. Unsurprisingly, Dave Davies feels the opposite way: he might be into doing some shows, but doesn't ever want to return to the studio with Ray ever again.

But, actually, this is a good sign, in a way. Recently, Dave wrote on his website that a Kinks tour would be "like a poor remake of 'Night of the Livin Dead' " and that Ray has been doing "Karaoke Kinks shows since 1996" - a reference to Ray's "Storyteller" shows, and solo concerts. So, if Dave is at least entertaining the idea of doing shows, that's at least something.
