Dear PA Patron,
John Lennon said that Ray Davies should have been recognised as England’s poet laureat.
And now it’s Sir Ray Davies.
This clip was recorded at Glastonbury only a few days after the passing of the Kink’s bassist Pete Quaife in 2010.
Waterloo Sunset is a lovely elegy for British life as Ray knew it in the 1960s
Ray Davies sheds a tear as he starts the second tune “Days”.
IMHO “Days” is a perfect song and when I hear it I think of my late Mom. And it never fails to bring a tear to my eye.
Some of the comments under “Days” from people who’ve lost loved ones are heartbreaking and I feel very much not alone.
Here’s one of the earliest “Days” clips.
An hour of Ray Davies, the Kinks and many many friends at the 2010 Glastonbury concert …..
I hope you enjoy these as much as did I.
