In praise of The Kinks….


In praise of The Kinks…. Today is Kink Day… at least on my blog! Thank you Kinks for your music!…What would life have been without Waterloo Sunset- Sunny Afternoon -You Really Got Me- All Day and All of the Night- Lola -Tired of Waiting- Death of a Clown-Dead End Street -Till the End of the Day -and Dedicated Follower of Fashion..et al..??? The world would have been a diminished place without those songs. Like everybody else, I grew up listening to them on a little transistor radio, and seeing the odd performance on black and white TV.. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Kinks were the musical trilogy in the highest realm of British music..They brought all the colour and texture into a world of grey.. and turned it on it’s head. I carry them all around in my head and heart wherever I go…
