Smithereens drummer Dennis Diken will be a special guest of Dave Davies of the Kinks on his current tour to support his new solo album “I Will Be Me”. The tour kicks off in November in Milwaukee WI, with dates around the East Coast and Dennis will be joining Dave for all but one of the shows.
Said Dennis, “I was hooked on the Kinks when I first heard “You Really Got Me” in ’64 and their music continues to have a profound influence on my drumming, writing and life in general. If someone would have told me when I was a kid that I’d be working with Dave Davies when I grew up my mind would have been blown. In fact, hanging and playing with Dave is blowing my mind! The band is fabulous and this tour promises to be fun-filled and exciting for us on stage as well as the fans who come to the shows!”
