The Kinks' Ray Davies To Seek Stars Through Reality TV?
The "Come Dancing" singer has revealed he's developing a stage musical about his upbringing, his turbulent relationship with brother and ex-bandmate Dave Davies and the group's success - and he can't think of anyone to play the leads onstage.
So he's planning to audition hopefuls on TV.
Davies tells WENN, "I'm developing a Kinks musical now which is really exciting. It's about the band. People think of the Kinks as these guys in red hunting jackets who sang 'You Really Got Me' and made these weird records, like Lola, but it's about us, how we evolved and a certain time in my life when I confronted many of my demons.
"The issues involved in the show are things that most people are dealing with in their lives and I'm hoping it can connect with audiences on many levels rather than being just a jukebox musical. It will have all the Kinks music because doing a Kinks musical without Kinks music in it would be a ridiculous project.
"It would be interesting casting it. I might have to start a reality contest to find who will play The Kinks."
