10. The Kinks

Ray and Dave Davies were feuding before the Kinks even became a band, but the brothers somehow stuck together for over 30 years. They may have lasted even longer, but ticket and record sales were sagging in the mid-1990s and it no longer made it worthwhile for Ray and Dave to put up with each other.

A 2004 stroke sidelined Dave for nearly a decade, but he's since healed and last year, he began doing shows again. Ray never stopped working, and this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Kinks. Rumors are flying they're going to hit the road, and neither Davies brother denies that wheels are in motion. Don't be at all surprised if this gets announced within a few months. Then again, don't be surprised if it implodes before it even gets off the ground. The Kinks have a real knack for fucking up a good thing.
