Ray Davies Back In Hospital

Ailing rocker RAY DAVIES has returned to hospital, as he struggles to recover from a gun shot wound sustained in January (04).

THE KINKS singer, who was shot as he pursued an attacker in New Orleans, Louisiana, was treated after the incident - but was re-admitted to hospital in London on Wednesday (31MAR04).

The 59-year-old's agent PAUL CHARLES says, "He hasn't recovered properly and is under physical strain.

"He wants to be 100 per cent before he returns to the stage. We expect him to stay in hospital for the next few days."

Davies was due to perform an series of gigs in London next week (ends08APR04) but was forced to cancel as he is not expected to fully recovery until September this year (04).

He was last seen hobbling on a walking stick as he collected a CBE from QUEEN ELIZABETH II at London's BUCKINGHAM PALACE last month (MAR04).
