Ray Davies of The Kinks talks to Iris Harrison

10:03 minutes Ray Davies of The Kinks talks to Iris Harrison

The Kinks are one of those bands that lead the way in the British Invasion. They have influenced several different genres of rock 'n roll, including punk, hard rock, and grunge. Ray Davies has put his experiences into a book titled "Americana: The Kinks, the Riff, the Road: The Story" and begins from his hospital bed in New Orleans after being shot. We talk about the New Orleans incident, the Schoolboys in Disgrace tour, how he feels about America, and how he feels about Van Halen's cover of "You Really Got Me." I hope you enjoy the interview. ~Iris
