Reuniting the Kinks

Geoff Edgers is a staff writer at the Boston Globe.  The 40-something reporter had a midlife crisis a few years ago and decided that he had to get the rock band The Kinks back together again.  He reconnected with a high school buddy who's now a famous movie-maker.  And the two set out to film Geoff's attempts to get the band to reunite. Trouble is, the two brothers who fronted the group more than 40 years ago can't stand each other. Lead vocalist Ray Davies and lead guitarist Dave Davies haven't spoken in years.  Geoff talks with Dick Gordon about his oddball quest, and the memorable moments he had with each Davies brother.  The movie Do It Again is now on the film festival circuit.
