    • The Kinks - LONDON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 12:  Ray Davies from the Kinks arrives in a London Cab during the Closing Ceremony on Day 16 of the London 2012 Olympic Games at Olympic Stadium on August 12, 2012 in London, England.
    • 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.

    There is no brotherly love between The Kinks' Ray and Dave Davies! In England's Daily Mail, Dave called his sibling Ray an "asshole" adding that he's like a "vampire" because he sucks Dave "dry of ideas, emotions and creativity." Dave claims being around Ray is "toxic" and revealed that after Kinks bassist Pete Quaife died this year, all Ray wanted to do was reunite at a memorial and get press for his album. Yikes. There is some serious bad blood between the two brothers.
    Are you a Kinks fan? Will Dave and Ray ever bury the hatchet (but not in one another's backs?)
