In een nieuw interview met Rolling Stone praat Ray Davies ook over The Who. De eerste singles van The Who leken veel op Kinks-nummers.
Ray zegt hierover: “Well, they were influenced, to put it politely. When I heard “I Can’t Explain,” I thought, “Someone’s cocked our rear!” Pete has said that it was an influence. But that wasn’t as bad as when the Doors came out with “Hello, I Love You.”“
