Kinks frontman Ray Davies is set to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame this year.

The legendary North London musician will be joined by fellow 2014 inductees Donovan, Graham Gouldman, Mark James and Jim Weatherly at the 45th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner on June 12th at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

His induction to the Songwriters Hall of Fame isn't the first time Davies has been recognised for his rock status. In 1990 he was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Kinks.
