Synopses & Reviews
"...new interviews with both Dave and Ray are particularly revealing." MOJO
"...journalist Hasted has delivered the most complete and satisfying biography ever published on the band." Record Collector
The Kinks are the quintessential British sixties band, revered for an incredible series of classic songs (""You Really Got Me,"" ""Waterloo Sunset"" and ""Lola"" to name but a few) and critically acclaimed albums such as The Village Green Preservation Society
Featuring original interviews with key band members Ray Davies, his brother Dave Davies and Mick Avory, as well as Chrissie Hynde and many others close to the group, every stage of their career is covered in fascinating detail: the hits, the American successes of the 1970s and the legendary band in-fighting. Nearly 50 years after they formed, the Kinks' influence is still being felt today as strongly as ever.
