Musical Artist - The Moody Blues

The Moody Blues circa 1969
The Moody Blues are an English band that is probably best known for their hits Nights in White Satin, Tuesday Afternoon, Question, and I'm Just a Singer in a Rock and Roll Band. Originally founded in 1964, the band is still a going concern and currently consists of Justin Hayward, Graeme Edge, and John Lodge. Former members include Ray Thomas, Mike Pinder, Denny Laine, Clint Warwick, Rodney Clark, and Patrick Moraz. In their early years, the band focused on traditional blues music, with some success in the form of their recording of the song Go Now. The band eventually switched to the fusion of classical and rock music that became its trademark, and began turning out albums in their signature style starting with Days of Future Passed, and then moving on to In Search of the Lost Chord, On the Threshold of a Dream, and To Our Children's Children's Children and several others. While they did have individual songs that turned into hits, their focus was clearly on creating complete albums, and as a result they developed a devoted following despite only moderate success on the charts. Although the last album the band recorded was December, released in 2003, they are still, as of 2017, actively touring.

The Moody Blues have a website named The Moody Blues. They can also be found on Facebook.
