  1. He is my hero, I have seen him three times. He has friends in Tucson. What a glorious songwriter and brother. I met him here. I made a t shirt that said Kinks Size. I approached him in lobby as they were going to car. He tried to dodge me, I said, hey. I am the only person here trying to see you. He stopped and then we talked and he kissed me on the cheek. I had brought the album sleeve of kink size with me, I had already gotten most of autographs. He signed it and I said I did get Dave. See when they were ducking me Dave went around pole in lobby and Ray the other I went for Ray. So Rays once he is the car Dave won’t do anything. But I will ask him. So we went to the car and Dave signed my album sleeve. I framed it. A treasure to me. Lola, Waterloo Sunset, Holiday, preservation One and Two. Muswell. Goes on and on, hugely prolific and outstanding. Superman. And of course the acknowledged best rock song of all time, ALL DAY AND ALL Of THE NIGHT!
