Dave Davies described his relationship with, Ray, as fraught with envy. Ray getting knighted last week probably didn't help that.

Ray Davies said after the ceremony in which he was honored by Prince Charles that he's been writing a new musical about siblings, no doubt inspired by his contentious relationship with his own younger brother, Dave.

Of the style of music, Ray told the Belfast Telegraph, "I want to model the songs as if The Kinks had been here. It's definitely a mindset to get into. I'm working on it."

As for getting the band back together, he added, "a reunion is unlikely at this stage, unless a miracle is going to happen. Everybody is on their own journey now."

Ray has a new solo album, Americana, due out April 21.
