Rolv Wesenlund (playing Fleksnes)  was sound-man in the Pye-studio in London when The Kinks recorded «You Really Got Me», the first heavy metal-recording, say Willis to the Norwegian newspaper "Dagbladet"(19.11.01). Willis has written a history book on popular music. There isn't any remarks on other Norwegian artist  in his book, only his Norwegian fab four:  

    Ibsen           Hamsun            Grieg           Fleksnes

Dave Davies

From Wikipedia, 
the free encyclopedia.

"David Russell Gordon Davies
(born February 3, 1947) was a singer and guitarist with the British rockband The Kinks, which he founded with Pete Quaife in 1963.

(His brother Ray, who became the best-known member of  the band, joined soon after.) Although the group has been all but disbanded since the early 1990s, Davies continues to have a steady musical career as a performer and songwriter."

- As you can see Wikipedia is more pessimistic than WhyKinks on a reunion. By the way you are not fired Dave (free after a Ray statement on Boston Arms 28.11.04). Have a great birthday, Dave!.
