Dave Davies In-depth Biography

Although he took a largely subordinate role to his brother Ray} in the Kinks}, Dave}'s fierce guitar work and hoarse but effective background (and occasional lead) vocals were key elements of the band's appeal. Dave} also occasionally wrote songs for the Kinks} that showed him to be a writer of considerable skill and wit, if not up to the same level as Ray}. In the late '60s, Dave} made some solo singles that met with critical success in Britain, although they were unknown in the U.S. "Death of a Clown"} (also included on the Kinks}' Something Else} LP) made number three on the British charts in 1967, and the follow-up, "Susannah's Still Alive,"} also did fairly well.

Dave} began to consider making a solo album, but after a couple other solo singles flopped, he seemed to lose heart and abandoned his plans (some unreleased solo tracks from this period turned up on the obscure Kinks} bootleg Good Luck Charm}). In the 1980s, Dave} finally began a solo career in earnest, releasing a series of mainstream rock} albums and various collections of demos and outtakes that found little critical or commercial acclaim, before his work was neatly summarized on Unfinished Business: Dave Davies Kronikles 1963-1998}. The hard-rocking Bug} from 2002 was his first album of new material in nearly 20 years. Davies} suffered a major stroke in 2004 and used composing and painting as therapy during the lengthy recovery period that followed. The new song "God in My Brain"} was inspired by the stroke and appeared on the 2006 compilation Kinked}. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide
