X-ray by Ray Davies
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ingeniously styled as a biography, this subversively brilliant rock memoir is the work of a nameless, faceless writer hired by an Orwellian entity called 'the Corporation' to capture the essence of Ray Davies, lead singer and songwriter of The Kinks and one of the greatest rock 'n' rollers of all time. Tales of London and the swinging Sixties rock scene evolve as Davies reveals his life and times to the writer, often passing his stories directly into the writer's consciousness. Carnaby Street, Top of the Pops, the Cavern Club, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and other fixtures of the period fade in and out of this compelling narrative. Part memoir, part social history, part psychological thriller, this elusive and daring book exposes rock stardom as the heaven, hell, and purgatory that it is.
