Not Like Everybody Else!

I am on a major Raymond Douglas Davies kick. First I read "Americana" and now I'm deep into "X-Ray." RDD is a writer of distinction!

I love his take about songwriting in 1968: 

"While everybody else thought that the hip thing to do was to drop acid, do as many drugs as possible and listen to music in a coma, the Kinks were singing songs about lost friends, draught beer, motorbike riders, wicked witches and flying cats." - Raymond Douglas Davies
