The mods have given me their kind permission to ask a bit of a favour from Straight Dope participants.
I’m working on a book The Kinks: An English Working Band (tentative title from the publisher), to be published (again, tentatively!) in early 2016 by Scarecrow/Tempo Press. More information on this music series can be found here https://tempobooks.wordpress.com/.
I’d like feedback from fans for a chapter on fandom, audience, and influence of the works and performance of the Kinks 1964-1996 . Iff you have comments to make about individual encounters and performances of their solo work, that will be considered as well.
Email me at kinks.book.survey @ gmail.com (take out the spaces in the email address). I’ll send to you a copy of the survey as a Word document with instructions about returning it.
I will be sending surveys through to 31st March 2014; any email request received after that will not be answered. Do please have your surveys sent back to me by 30th April 2014.
I will get the survey to you asap, but do please keep in mind I’m working on my own and have a full time job!
Thanks so much! And many thanks to those who have helpied me to get the word out about my project.
With kind regards,
