“Death of a Clown” is a song by Dave Davies, member of British rock group The Kinks, released as his debut solo single in 1967. The song is co-written with his brother Ray Davies. Ray Davies’ first wife, Rasa, sings the supporting female vocal during the song’s chorus. Although credited to Dave Davies, it was technically a Kinks recording, as his backing band was The Kinks. The single release was met with considerable success in the UK, hitting #3, thus prompting Dave Davies to consider embarking on a solo career. When subsequent singles were met with less success, the idea was set aside until 1980, with his debut album being AFL1-3603. The song has also been released on Kinks albums, the first time on Something Else by The Kinks. (1967) Read on...
