FALL RIVER – After a blistering, sold out performance at the Narrows Center in June 2013, legendary guitarist Dave Davies, who founded The Kinks in the early 1960s, returns for an encore performance on Saturday, October 24, 2015. He’ll be backed by a full electric band, performing songs from The Kinks and his solo albums. Click HERE for tickets!
Davies, who slit open the speaker in his amp to give the “You Really Got Me” riff its signature distorted guitar sound, was named one of the “top 100 guitarists of all time” by Rolling Stone Magazine. Besides being an instrumental force in such Kinks hits as “Lola,” “Come Dancing,” and “All Day and All of the Night,” he also wrote and sang a number of their best songs, including “Death of a Clown” and “Susannah’s Still Alive.” As a member of The Kinks, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
Outside of The Kinks, Davies has worked on a slew of critically acclaimed records. His songs have been featured in films by director John Carpenter and on TV shows like The Sopranos which used his tune “Living on a Thin Line.” His most recent solo album, Rippin’ Up Time, was released last October. The record marked a return to his groundbreaking guitar sound and innovative songwriting. He’ll be releasing a new live album this August. Copies will be available at his show at the Narrows Center for fans to purchase.
