Kinks Artist Bio and Lyrics


The ‘80s band the Kinks were started in the 1960s by brothers Dave and Ray Davies. They had their first major hit in the middle of the decade with “You Really Got Me.” They continued to perform and record up to the year 1996. The group’s name stemmed from the fact that they used to wear “kinky” boots and leather capes when they performed on stage.

The original line up of the Kinks included Ray Davies on guitars and vocals, Dave Davies on guitars, Peter Quaife on bass, and Mick Avory on drums. They first made their name in the United States for being one of four “British Invasion” bands, alongside the Rolling Stones, the Who, and the Beatles.
