My friend Geoff Edgers, the Boston Globe's arts reporter, is spending all his free time on a personal mission: to reunite The Kinks.

But check out this excerpt from "Do It Again," their documentary in progress. Geoff talks to Kinks bassist Pete Quaife, who compares the band to the movie The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly; he gets Sting's endorsement, and the two of them duet on The Kinks' "Set Me Free"; and Hollywood lovely Zooey Deschanel says she thinks the band secretly wants to get back together.
