In 1990, their first year of eligibility, The Kinks were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The Kinks live - their DLA: One for the Road. This really should be in my Top Ten list of DLA's - and on certain occasions - like for instance - when I am actually playing it - in my Top Five. This record was constantly on in Dale V.'s dorm room in college. I love the opening to Celluloid Heroes - ... "Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star, And everybody's in movies, it doesn't matter who you are..." In their brief review, Allmusic wrote that "One for the Road is a fascinating document of trailblazing elder statesmen who paved the way for heavy metal and punk, but never felt a glorious pop song was out of their grasp." Well put. The Kinks of course were a seminal English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, by brothers Ray and Dave Davies in 1964. Categorized commonly in the US as a British Invasion band, The Kinks remain, looking back, as one of the most important and influential rock acts of the era. Like many other brothers-in-the-same-band (think Van Halen, Black Crows, CCR) oft times there was a certain blood feud that only a brother can truly appreciate. Ray Davies (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Dave Davies (lead guitar, vocals) remained members throughout the group's 32-year run. Original members Pete Quaife (bass guitar, vocals) and Mick Avory (drums and percussion) were replaced by John Dalton in 1969 and Bob Henrit in 1984, respectively. Dalton was in turn replaced by Jim Rodford in 1978. The great Nicky Hopkins joined the band during studio sessions in the mid-1960s. Later, various keyboardists, including John Gosling and Ian Gibbons, were full-time members.
