Sir Ray Davies has never voted because he's 'always been on tour' on polling day
The Kinks frontman Sir Ray Davies has revealed he has never voted in a general election.
The acclaimed musician, 72, told BBC Radio 2's Simon Mayo he had "always been on tour" on polling day so had never managed to cast a vote.
However, he plans to change that in June's snap election as it is a "momentous occasion".
He told the station's Drivetime show: "I think I will. It's a very important time in our history.
"I think it's going to be a time that we look back on as being a momentous occasion.
"We're doing something that's turning the world upside down."
The Lola hit-maker added that voting "should be compulsory ... this is a big vote".
Sir Ray is currently promoting his latest record Americana - his first solo album in 10 years.
