The Kinks main man Ray Davies has a new memoir out Americana-The Kinks, The Riffs, The Road, The Story.

One of rock’s greatest songwriters ever did a brief by-telephone publicity tour last week, and talked with quivering and star-struck KZOK disc jockey Scott Vanderpool, a huge Kinks fan who was at that 1978 Seattle Center Arena show where a guy fell out of the ceiling. Ray remembers that show well, and talks about it, as well as growing up on an idealized U.S.of A., The Kinks ’64-’69 ban from playing in America, getting shot in New Orleans, inspiring a new generation of musicians here in Seattle, his relationship with brother Dave, the possibility of a Kinks reunion, and more….hear it here:
