Kink : An Autobiography
by Dave Davies




Overview -
In this explosive account, Dave Davies reveals all of the inside stories of his exciting and turbulent years as the founding member and lead guitarist of the Kinks. In this uncut account of life on the edge, Davies delves into the turbulence of his own amazing life - from his inauspicious beginnings as a teenage dropout in the Muswell Hill suburb of North London to sudden and unbelievable stardom, plagued by an often volatile relationship with his older brother. Through Davies' eyes, we see how the evolution of that relationship is reflected in their music. And Dave Davies holds nothing back in describing their lifelong feud, including the time Ray tried to trade Dave to a wealthy gay concert promoter in exchange for his mansion. From his 1960s hedonism, Dave Davies' life as a rocker visited extreme lows and highs. In Kink, he looks at how he survived the cut-throat dealings of the record business, conquered alcohol and drugs, and overcame the tortures of paranoia and mental breakdown and his suicide attempts. And here, for the first time, Dave tells his remarkable story of personal spiritual awakening that profoundly changed his life.
