Kinks online!

Other Kinks videos are here.

I've erased two songs cause it was noisy when the three songs begin.

kinks.de interview with ex-Kinks bass player Jim Rodford

He played 18 years with the Kinks -- only Mick Avory, Ray and Dave Davies were longer serving Kinks members. Anybody who has seen the Kinks in the 80s and 90s will remember the little man playing great bass lines and singing backing vocals. After the split of the Kinks in 1996 he played for example with Colin Blunstone & Rod Argent (Zombies).

For once in a While, something really happened on French TV... The Kinks played three songs that night. Will try to grab the three. ;) Enjoy.Click on it to watch it full screen (Small symbol [_])

For the past few years you have been working with Ray Davies and the Kinks how did that come about?

Networking again. I’d been playing in Blues Co. a 9 piece R and B band with Jim Rodford, Mike Cotton, Root Jackson and a load of pals who came in and out as deps when someone was on the road. Jim by this time had joined the Kinks while I was playing with the remnants of Argent now called Phoenix and various other guys like Ian Mathews, Ritchie Havens, Don McLean, Charlie, Roger Daltrey, Leo Sayer, Colin Blunstone, Ringo Starr, Russ Ballard and loads of others. So, Dave Davies was making his own album and Jim rowed me in on the project which was quickly followed by a second album. Anyway I was working at the Torrington with Blues Company looked into the audience and there was Ray Davies who’d come to see what I played like. He offered me the gig and that was it. I was immediately off to America after almost two days rehearsal!
