Legendary rock guitarist and songwriter, Dave Davies, co-founder with his brother Ray Davies of the British Invasion group, The Kinks, is performing at the Beacon Theatre in Hopewell on Thursday, April 12.

A true pioneer rumored to have helped create the first heavy metal guitar tone when he sliced his amp speaker, Davies wrote some of the band's great under-appreciated songs including "Hold My Hand," "Living on a Thin Line" and "Strangers," while singing lead vocals on memorable classics such as "I'm Not Like Everybody Else."

Davies suffered a stroke in 2004 and has had a long recovery back to taking the stage again, having to learn to walk, talk and play guitar.
