Ray Davies wants to reunite The Kinks for Glastonbury, despite years of feuding with his brother and bandmate Dave Davies

Ray Davies wants to reunite The Kinks for Glastonbury.

The 72-year-old frontman revealed he wants to work with his brother and bandmate Dave, 69, again, despite years of feuding and he hopes the band can headline the annual music festival in Somerset, England.

He told The Sun: "Dave and I will definitely work together again. And we want to play live.

"Maybe The Kinks could play Glastonbury?"

Ray and Dave founded the band in 1963 and split in 1996.

However, the brothers performed together for the first time in almost 20 years in 2015, when Ray joined Dave on stage in London for a performance of 'You Really Got Me'.

Speaking about the performance previously, Ray told the Evening Standard: "I'm still trying to live that down. I joined him on stage briefly but it would be overly romantic to think it was because of the show or to start talking about a reunion."

The band has had a number of different line-ups over the years but the siblings have featured in each one.

The Kinks' classic line-up featured Mick Avory on drums and the late Pete Quaife on bass.

Quaife was replaced by John Dalton in 1969 while Bob Henrit took over from Avory in 1984, but Avory is expected to return for a reunion.
