Kinks' guitarist Dave Davies starts a nine-city tourtonight (Tuesday) in the Philadelphia suburb of Collingswood, New Jersey. He says it couldn't come soon enough.
Dave Davies on getting back on the road:
"There is that old fashioned thing, but music does kind of keep you young really. It's such a cliche but it's so true. You know, if I have like more than like three or four months off I start to get aches and pains -- 'Oh, my knees hurting me. I don't feel so good.' And to go back on the road and it's so tiring and exhausting. But there's something about music that keeps you young at heart."
The tour runs through April 21st in Chicago.
