‘The Kinks’ Ray Davies admits he struggled with alcohol a decade ago. The English rock musician has opened up about keeping his battle with booze a secret, also saying he locked himself away and drank for three weeks straight.
‘You Really Got Me’ singer has confessed that his clean-living image is somewhat of a myth – he simply didn’t get drunk and take drugs in public. Davies said to Mojo Magazine he also took drugs at an art college before he became a star, and wasn’t interested in them when he was at the top of the charts – and he was able to control his booze binge at a low point in his life.
”Not many people know this, but I was living alone in 2000/2001. I was living in an isolated place and drinking heavily.
