Our Own Paul McDaniel Meets, Hugs Ray Davies

Item! Last nite at Tortilla Flats, Wormburner guitarist Paul McDaniel spied The Kinks’ Ray Davies standing just a few feet away at the bar. The two aging rockers exchanged pleasantries as Paul excitedly recounted having seen The Kinks’ Come Dancing tour as a youngster more than twenty years ago. The iconic British Invasion songwriter was a perfect English gentleman throughout the entire exchange, even allowing for a brief (if somewhat awkward) embrace before being whisked away to play a solo show uptown at the Beacon Theatre.
