    • The Kinks - LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 24:  Band members relax backstage at the 100 Club on February 24, 2011 in London, England. Since it's opening in 1942, the 100 club has hosted many artists such as B.B.King, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, Oasis, and the Sex Pistols to name but a few. The club had recently been threatened with closure, because of financial pressures as have many smaller fringe clubs across the country, but after a high-profile campaign supported by Sir Paul McCartney and Ronnie Wood, a recent sponsorship deal with the shoe company Converse has saved the 100 Club from an uncertain future.

    The Kinks Ray Davies has gone on record with Q magazine about his health issues that stem back to the 2004 incident where he was shot in the leg after chasing a thief in New Orleans. Davies, 66, said that a clot formed due to the residue still in his leg and that made him ill enough where he could not fly and he had to cancel his tour last year because of it.
