There's some reason for optimism regarding that possible Kinks reunion next year in celebration of their 50th anniversary.

Dave Davies tweets, "Don't believe the 'brotherly hate' hype... Me and [my brother] Ray [Davies] are talking!" And Ray confirms this, saying they recently had dinner together and Dave followed up with an E-mail.

Dave says there's a "50-50 chance" they'll reunite, but Ray wants to do so only if they make new music. Of course, money talks, so we'll wait and see.
