England's greatest songwriter was shot in New Orleans yesterday. According to early reports, Ray Davies of the Kinks -- the only rock star to sing an ode to Queen Victoria before getting knighted -- was wounded in the leg while chasing down the thieves who stole his date's purse. That said, there's always the chance that Dave did it.
Us fans can sleep easy: the singer appears to be in good shape. According to Davies' manager, "He's in hospital but it is not really serious. He should be up and about in a day or so."
