Kinks' Dave Davies still recovering from stroke

11/08/2004 - 18:30:51

The Kinks founder member Dave Davies will have to spend another month in hospital as he recovers from a stroke.

The You Really Got Me guitarist, 57, collapsed on 30 June in London following radio interviews with British DJs Danny Baker and Phil Jupitus to promote his solo material.

His spokesman Alan Robinson says: "He is paralysed on the right-hand side of his body, but he retains some feeling and he can still hold a guitar plectrum.

"These small things mean a hell of a lot. They're small but very important.

"Dave is taking his illness with typical good humour, and with a positive demeanour."

His representative believes Davies should recover after a course of physiotherapy.

Maybe he and Christopher Reeve can either start a band or be surgically fused together?

Well, music interviews might be tougher now than in his day.

Anyway, hope he has a speedy recovery.

Didn't Ray get mugged in New Orleans the other month? The brothers seem to be having an annus horribilis... :(

Didn't he get shot in the leg in New Orleans? Probably someone getting revenge for that Waterloo Sunset duet with Damon Albarn in the mid-90s.
