London, Jan 4 (ANI): The three surviving members of The Kinks are in talks to be back on stage in 2014, according to reports.

The iconic 1960s band are considering reuniting to mark a half-century since the band's debut release, Sky News reported.

The group's frontman and chief songwriter Ray Davies said the reunion of the north London band was as "close as it's ever been to happening".

Now the three surviving original members, Davies, 69, his guitarist younger brother Dave and original drummer Mick Avory have told Uncut magazine that they are keen to get together for the milestone.

The two brothers have had a famously fractious relationship, but Dave, 66, said he and his estranged brother had met up in a pub in Highgate, north London, last summer to discuss how they would mark the occasion.

The group's last album was in 1993 and their final public performance took place in 1996. Original bass player Pete Quaife died in 2010. (ANI)
