About Dave Davies
English musician David Russell Gordon “Dave” Davies has an estimated net worth of $3.5 million. Davies gained his net worth by being the lead guitarist and vocalist for the English rock group, The Kinks. He was born on 3 February 1947 in Denmark Terrace, Fortis Green, London.
Although he took a largely subordinate role to his brother Ray in the Kinks, Dave’s fierce guitar work and hoarse but effective background (and occasional lead) vocals were key elements of the band’s appeal. Dave also occasionally wrote songs for the Kinks that showed him to be a writer of considerable skill and wit, if not up to the same level as Ray. In the late ’60s, Dave made some solo singles that met with critical success in Britain, although they were unknown in the U.S. “Death of a Clown” (also included on the Kinks’ Something Else LP) made number three on the British charts in 1967, and the follow-up, “Susannah’s Still Alive,” also did fairly well.
In the 1980s, Dave finally began a solo career in earnest, releasing a series of mainstream rock albums and various collections of demos and outtakes that found little critical or commercial acclaim, before his work was neatly summarized on Unfinished Business: Dave Davies Kronikles 1963-1998. The hard-rocking Bug from 2002 was his first album of new material in nearly 20 years.
Davies suffered a major stroke in 2004 and used composing and painting as therapy during the lengthy recovery period that followed. The song, “God in My Brain” was inspired by the stroke and appeared on the 2006 compilation Kinked. In 2007, Davies released his first full-length post-stroke studio album, Fractured Mindz, on the Koch label.
