Morning YouTube Clip Of The Great One

No, not Wayne Gretzky. The other Great One… Ray Davies, prolific songwriter and lead singer of The Kinks.

FranK Lima (capital K on purpose — it’s a Kinks fan thing) found this and posted it this morning on his Ray Davies unofficial Facebook page and I thought I would share it.

This is a great interview that I’ve never seen before. Mister Davies is a little vulnerable, always charming and, well, just slightly full of crap.

Ray, who I will always just adore, is a notorious liar.

I don’t hold this against him.

When the interviewer asks him to reveal something unknown and he says “I’ve never been nervous before going onstage.” This from a man who used to hide behind other band members early in his career. And in the past I’ve seen quotes by him talking about how nervous he gets.

But that’s Ray. Slipped in between the insight and the revealing information about inner demons is the big whopper lie.

God love him. And God save The Kinks!
