Dave Davies has fuelled his public feud with former bandmate and estranged brother Ray Davies – insisting he will never reunite with the rocker to reform The Kinks.
Dave, who has a famously volatile relationship with Ray, has not worked with his brother since the band split in 1996.

He declined Ray’s invitation to reunite for a tribute concert to late bandmate Pete Quaife in June, after the drummer died from kidney failure.

Earlier this month, Ray sparked rumors a reunion was imminent, telling Sky News his brother was “coming round” to the idea of putting the band back together.

However, Dave has slammed the idea – insisting a reunion is out of the question because it would taint the band’s legacy.

He tells Britain’s Daily Mail, “It would be a shame. You don’t need to see silly old men in wheelchairs singing You Really Got Me.”
