NME.com reports that the singer and guitarist wants to record at the studio for another solo album, reportedly telling London 24, "It was up for sale but I've got another record to do so we're debating what to do now. It's open for discussion."
Davies, who would be making his third solo album of all-new material should he decide to progress, had already admitted the sale would be a controversial one, stating "there's a lot of history with the Kinks, we bought it as a hangout really, somewhere we could rehearse and record it and mushroomed into a studio. We've had some really good acts over the years come here. We're doing the best we can."
Some of those good acts include the likes of the Stone Roses, Thin Lizzy and Blur, after the Kinks opened it up to other acts in 1976 following five years of private use.
They themselves continued to use the studio up until 1996 -- now it would appear that their very leader is determined to have the next important say --whether final or otherwise.
