Dave Davies – I’m not like everybody else (live)

You can trace all things loud and riff-y right back to the Kinks‘ Dave Davies, starting with the fantastically simple power chords of “You Really Got Me,” which he recorded at age 17 – setting off a run of proto-metal singles from “All Day and All of the Night” to “Till the End of the Day.” Davies, who created the distortion on “You Really Got Me” by slicing an amp speaker with a razor, has laughed off claims that it was actually played by an uncredited Jimmy Page: “Who’d want to play a solo that crazy, anyway? Only Dave Davies could do that.”
