In reviewing the new Kinks biography, it was interesting to me, as it always is, to read about the interactions between all of the bands during that golden age of music in 1960s London. This quote by Ray Davies regarding when The Kinks opened for The Beatles in 1964 made me laugh out loud, so I thought I'd share:
"Paul McCartney was the most competitive person I've ever met. John Lennon wasn't. He just thought everyone else was shit."
In light of yesterday being the 33rd anniversary of John's murder, I thought it'd be nice to share something that summed up the essence of John's belief in himself and his band at that moment (later on, he became a big Kinks fan himself).
