Ray Davies Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Ray, and his band mates, were banned from the US, following their summer 1965 tour. The official reason, given by the American Federation of Musicians, was that they failed to register with the union before they performed. But it was widely speculated that the objection was about their violent on-stage behavior. This lasted for four years, during the height of the British Invasion, when the Kinks could have massively affected the music of the time, and almost certainly would have played at Woodstock.
