DAVE DAVIES: Mystical Journey (documentary). Review.
Music and spirituality have been major influences throughout his life. For most people, they may seem far from each other. For Dave, however, there's no distance and never has been. Born into a big family and a home with many elder sisters who were all into the spiritual and intuitive sides of life, Dave was always interested in unusual things as a kid.
One such unusual experience was when he had a telepathic experience with his brother, Ray Davies (lead singer and composer of The Kinks) when he was hospitalised. Dave believes this bond could be the reason for the magic moments created by the band in its heyday.
We meet Dave the rebel walking through the city – a parallel to his youth, his physical history and life in rock 'n' roll. At the same time, we meet Dave the sensitive man in the great wide landscape as a parallel to his spiritual inner world. It seems that the two worlds never merged; it's more of an ongoing task for holistic Dave to unite music, sound and spirituality into one great energy behind all things.
