Honestly, To sit down and listen to a complete album from the Who, Rolling Stones, or the Kinks. Era 60's & 70's When they were all peaking. My opinion the Kinks have them all beat! Face to Face, Something Else, Arthur, And Especially Village Green. Putting them up against even the Beatles I have to give it to the Kinks. Their music has not dated. Great British Band and my favorite from 14 years old till now. If you where lucky enough to see them live only adds to their talent. Amazing Live Group. With Ray's deft hand, writing and front man performance And Dave on lead guitar, WOW!!

Did you know that the Davis brothers were born with folds in their gentleman's bits. This is how the band got their name.

Underrated band... In the 60's they may not have been on the same level as the Beatles or Stones, but they certainly were as good as the Who or anyone else.

Their early work is influential in being probably one of the earliest examples of protopunk, but they vastly changed as the 60s went on. They became a more soft-spoken and melodic group, and it was for the better. Their late 60s and early 70s work is some of the most timeless music of the British invasion. Not a bit of it has aged poorly.

A fantastic band. Ray Davies songwriting was introspective, witty and humorous at the same time....but make no mistake about it, Dave's raw, aggressive guitar work is what gave The Kinks their signature sound. It is also what made them one of the biggest early influences on hard rock.

Davies was definitely the coolest songwriter of his generation. One of the few people in rock N roll that had a great sense of humor and remarkable observation.

My favourite band ever, and I'm no NAPLES. Very sad to see Lola, which is not so good, and Muswell Hillbillies, which is "only" great, in front of Face To Face, which is an amazing masterpiece, though.

Shaking hands and exchanging a few words with Ray Davies is up there among the most vivid memories of my life.
