    • 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.

    Ray and Dave Davies of The Kinks has seen his sister Rosie passed away just weeks after another sister Joyce died.

    Ray had to skip his induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame last month due to dealing with Joyce's death.

    Now, Rosie, who inspired The Kinks' song "Rosie Won't You Please Come Home," has died, passing away on July 2. It is thought that Rosie inspired the song after she moved to Australia with her husband, leaving her native Britain behind.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Davies family on this loss.
