Dave Davies is reportedly "coming around" to a reunion with The Kinks.

The former guitarist with the 'All Day and All Of The Night' group has been in talks about a reunion with his brother, the band's leader, Ray.

The group - an integral part of the British Invasion of the 60s, scoring a string of hits through that decade and in the 70s - had originally disbanded in 1996, but come close to reforming in 2004; although this failed when Dave suffered a stroke.

Singer Ray said he's trying to reunite with his brother and the band's original drummer Mick Avory.

He told Gigwise: "The interesting thing is I've had emails both from Mick and Dave about various other subject matters, but I think it will be down to Dave at the end of the day. But he's gradually coming round to it."

Although he's keen to play the band's hits; which include 'Lola', 'You Really Got Me' and 'Dedicated Follower of Fashion', Ray has also been working on new material with Mick.

He added: "I'll play some old songs, but new songs are what keeps me alive. I think hardcore fans and new fans want to hear new material."

The band broke up in 1996 due to differences between the band members, and diminishing interest in their new material. The band's original bass player, Pete Quaife, died earlier this year.
