On their first tour on the US, the Kinks where banned for 6 years. I have looked up on the internet but the reasons are quite unclear. Does anyone know them?

    Please expose your research, what did you find on internet (sources), what was unclear... so people won't say what you already know.

There are two theories I found; both seem likely and it could be some combination of the two, but I bet not paying their dues was the cause more than the fighting.

  1. They were notorious for on stage fighting with each other 1 2 3
  2. They failed to pay mandatory dues to the American Federation of Television and Recording Artists.
