Dave Davies Slams Idea of The Kinks Reunion

Dave says he will never reunite with estranged brother to reform the band, stating 'You don't need to see silly old men in wheelchairs singing 'You Really Got Me'.'

Dave Davies has fueled his public feud with former bandmate and estranged brother Ray Davies - insisting he will never reunite with the rocker to reform . 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 this year, 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'."
