Stroke and personal life

On 30 June 2004, Davies suffered a stroke while exiting a lift at Broadcasting House, where he had been promoting his then current album, Bug. He was taken to University College Hospital in Euston. Davies was released from the hospital on 27 August. Davies said in a 2006 interview:

—Dave Davies, Daily Mail, 10 October 2006.[29]

By 2006, Davies had recovered enough to be able to walk, talk and play guitar. He will return to touring in 2010, playing a few gigs in New York and New England, as well as one in Los Angeles.[30]

He is a friend of horror director John Carpenter, and his work is featured on Carpenter's remake of Village of the Damned. Carpenter also acted as godfather to Davies' son, Daniel, who plays in the hard rock bands Year Long Disaster and Karma To Burn.
