Happy Birthday to Ray Davies! There are many great clips on Youtube of the Kinks and Davies' solo career. In honor of Ray, the amazing mash-up of his You Really Got Me with Get Back. Love it! Want to learn more about Davies? I recommend that Spy Vibers check out the excellent interview he did on Fresh Air in 2008 during the release of Working Man's Cafe. It's interesting to hear a consummate storyteller talk about studying the people around him and gathering characters and experiences to write about. Concert alert: Ray Davies at Hyde Park on the 25th. Enjoy!

  1. Ray is my all-time favorite songwriter. I got a chance to see him live last year, and it was an amazing experience!
