Today is the 55th anniversary (US) of The Kinks’ The Kinks Kontroversy album. I truly am not a huge fan of The Kinks so I know just a little. That doesn’t mean I don’t like them, I just am not that familiar with them. But this album has this song that most 70s and 80s rock fans know as a “Van Halen Song” but it’s actually Van Halen’s version of a Kinks cover. And, this song wasn’t even the single. It was the B-Side. So, enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Well, lived my life and never stopped to worry ’bout a thing. Opened up and shouted out and never tried to sing. Wondering if I’d done wrong. Will this depression last for long? Won’t you tell me, where have all the good times gone?” – “Where Have All the Good Times Gone” (Davies)
