[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ray Davies [/lastfm]of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Kinks [/lastfm]was hospitalized today, due to a blood clot that formed in a bullet wound he suffered from 2004.

If you remember, Ray Davies chased a purse snatcher in New Orleans in ’04 and was shot during the pursuit.  He still has ongoing issues with the gunshot wound and tells Q Magazine: “It’s been pretty bad, actually. I got quite sick before Christmas from residue that is still in the leg and which formed a clot. It made me quite ill and I was hospitalised for a bit.”

Last November Davies had to cancel four concerts in NY after doctors ordered him not to fly until his condition has stabilized.

We wish Ray a speedy recovery.
