The Kinks frontman Sir Ray Davies is writing a new musical about siblings.
Sir Ray, lead singer and songwriter for the band, gave little away about his new project after he was knighted by the Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace.
"It's about siblings," he told the Press Association. "I can't tell you too much about that."
The 72-year-old said it was "partially" inspired by the famously rocky relationship with his brother Dave, who once described a pattern of "jealousy, hatred and envy" between the pair before The Kinks disbanded in 1996.
The pair recently reunited in Islington's Assembly Hall in London for the first time in almost 20 years, where they sang You Really Got Me.
Sir Ray said about the sibling reunion: "It lasted three minutes and it went very well and I said goodbye and went home."
The musical will not be the first time Sir Ray has stepped into the world of theatre.
His musical Come Dancing won the Mobius Award for best Off-West End production in 2009 and Sunny Afternoon won four Olivier Awards.
The Kinks were formed in 1963 and became one of the era's most popular bands, with Sir Ray penning classics such as Waterloo Sunset and Sunny Afternoon.
The band's influence on acts such as Oasis and Blur earned Sir Ray the nickname Godfather of Britpop.
However, he said that receiving the knighthood had made him re-evaluate his life's work.
"I don't think of myself as a musician, strangely enough," he said.
"I'm a creative person. If I had a card, it would say Sir Raymond Davies, creative person.
"When I started the gig when we had our first hit You Really Got Me, I just wanted to make enough money to go and live in Spain for the rest of my life and paint pictures, and one thing led to another and I ended up here."
Sir Ray, born in Muswell Hill, north London, said he was accepting the award for his family.
He said: "I hope it inspires people to do the work. I kept on working, regardless. I was speaking to Don McCullin and we kept on doing it."
He said he found the ceremony "moving", particularly the classical music that played as Charles handed out the honours.
"It's quite moving with the music and the theatrics. I listen to this kind of music often," he said.
