The UK's News Of The World has a pretty cool inteview with Ray Davies who talks about, as usual, reuniting with his brother Dave Davies in The Kinks. He says that Dave is planning to return to music next year, and Ray wants to maybe do some "low-key" Kinks shows to see if they can do it. I'm not sure how one of the greatest bands of all time, who haven't played together in 14 years, could possibly do a "low-key" show, but that's what he said.

What could be more suprirsing than Ray reuniting with Dave? Ray reuniting with his ex-, Pretenders frontwoman Chrissie Hynde? He says they actually recorded a duet together, "Postcard From London," available on the special edition of his latest release, The Kinks Choral Collection (but not on iTunes anyone know where I can hear this song?).

He is also working on a stage show about The Kinks (as opposed to his one man Storyteller shows from a few years ago, where he told the story of his and his brother's lives that led up to The Kinks), and of course he talked a bit about the Kinks biopic that is being directed by Julien Temple.  He also said that he'll have a duets album out next year - and that "Bruce Springsteen has expressed an interest." Awesome! Who else would you like to hear Ray duet with? Comment away!
