TIRED OF WAITING? THE KINKS STORY IS COMING TO THE BIG SCREEN

BBC Films is in the process of producing “You Really Got Me” about one of our favorite British bands –The Kinks – and the rivalry between the brothers Ray and Dave Davies who founded the band. Both of the feisty brothers wrote opposing autobiographies and these will be combined for the screenplay to give it balance. Julien Temple is set to direct so it definitely will be colorful and loud. If you forgot how enticing the Kinks music is, take a look at this “Lola” video.

    One of the greatest bands of the 60’s. The first time I sampled their music, I fell in love with their sound.

    To this day, when I hear the first few notes of “You really got me”……I am transported just for a few brief seconds to a amazing period of my life.

    One of the greatest concerts I’ve seen! Low Budget 1979 in Vancouver.
    It was the same tour as their One For The Road video.
    People were blown off their seats!!
    I have an email response from Dave after I sent him a saluts on his website about ten years or so ago. I blew a bunch of smoke up his ass about how he was/is, my favourite guitar player..which he is, next to Johnny Ramone…however I did not realize he had just had a stroke.Like, just!
    He responded simply with, “bless you.”
    It’s in my rock stars folder. With some interesting others.
    But none as cool as Dave The Rave.
    And Ray’s a god.

    Pronounced Davis, you know. Day-Vis.

    But I was scolded by Tommy Shaw from Styx!
    That made my day.

    If you remain seated during “You’ve Really Got Me” you’re either in a coma or dead. Hugely entertaining band. A movie seems to me to be a long time coming.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT:
    |

    This celebrity divorce came out of nowhere – the couple had seemed to be SO happy. Until, that is, the wife found out that her husband was quietly negotiating a settlement with a Hollywood madam. Her handsome husband had always had a wandering eye, but the forgiving wife flipped out when she learned that the Madam accused the husband of raping her and she threatened a lawsuit if he didn’t hand over some big bucks. ENOUGH she decided, and the wife immediately filed for divorce.
    Guess who!!!!
