Stage set for Kinks to return.
THE Kinks are on the verge of becoming the latest band to reform.
Frontman Ray Davies, 63, revealed a full reunion, the first in nearly 40 years, is on the cards.
It would coincide with a CD box set called Retrospective.
The Waterloo Sunset singers were originally Ray Davies, brother Dave, drummer Mick Avory and Pete Quaife on bass.
But Dave suffered a stroke in 2004 and Quaife is experiencing major kidney problems.
Ray told Record Collector: "I spoke to Quaife about a month ago and he dearly wants to make another record with me.
"I think Dave's getting better and Mick's still playing. It would be great to get back together just to see what musical ideas we had, and what would happen.
"There's so much to do in the little time we all have here. There are still two or three projects I would like to do.
"One of them is working with the Kinks again."
