The lead singer of The Kinks and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame talks about his remarkable career and in particular his new book , Americana, which explores his complex relationship with the USA. He looks back at the country whose culture he devoured as a young boy, which he and The Kinks so successfully ‘invaded’ in the early 1960s and which then banned him from performing for four years.
If anyone is going and wants to meet up afterwards for a drink and chat about Ray - let's do it. Suggestions for drink venue welcome, there are loads nearby, but I don't know Bristol that well.
Tickets are £8 plus booking = £10 from http://www.stgeorgesbristol.co.uk/event/festival-of-ideas-ray-davies/
