Ray Davies has been responsible for some of the most-loved and critically-acclaimed albums of the last 50 years including Face to Face, Something Else by The Kinks and The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society.
Heralded by generations of artists and bands such as David Bowie, Blur, The Jam and Mumford & Sons, Davies has influenced British music like few other artists.
Ray Davies is the lead singer, chief songwriter, and rhythm guitarist in the Kinks, one of the most long-lived of the British Invasion rock groups of the 1960s. In effect, the Kinks have always been merely a backup group for Davies, who writes and sings nearly all their songs with only the occasional contribution from his brother, Dave, who plays lead guitar in the group. At various times, Ray Davies made noises about dissolving the group and going solo, but for years the closest he came to it was taking solo credit for the soundtrack to his 1985 film Return to Waterloo (which he wrote and directed), even though the music sounds as much like the Kinks as that on any regular Kinks record.
