A Casino Gets the Kinks OutHappy Birthday to Kink's guitar ace Dave Davies who turned 66 this month. The Kinks had a huge influence on British rock and roll and R&B in the '60s. It's hard to imagine The Who, The Jam, or The White Stripes without them.  (Not to mention everything heard on the Nuggets collection of 60s garage rock.)

And as you can see from this classic clip of The Kinks performing live on Shindig, that one-of-a-kind tone is coming at you courtesy of Dave's Epiphone Casino--further evidence that you can't really have a great rock and roll band without an Epiphone somewhere in the mix. 

Dave has a new album out this spring. Stay tuned for details.
