As a boy in post-War England, legendary Kinks singer/songwriter Ray Davies fell in love with America e" its movies and music, its culture of freedom fed his imagination. In Americana, Davies tries to make sense of his long love-hate relationship with the country that both inspires and frustrates him, and where he nearl y lost his life in a street shooting. Some of the most fascinating characters in pop culture and the British Inva sion make appearances, from the famous to the behind-the-scenes players. Th e book is interspersed with lyrics and also includes photographs from Davie s's own collection and the Kinkse(tm) archive. From his quintessentially English perspective, Davies e" with candour, humour, and wit e" takes us on a very personal road trip through his life and storied career as a rock star, and reveals what music, fame and America really mean to him.
