Are we still looking for those nights in white satin from the moody blues?

Posted by  on

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever go a Moody Blues concert. I liked their music, but not enough to go out to see them. In the mid-80s, I heard this song on the radio called YOUR WILDEST DREAMS. I loved it and was even more surprised to find that it was the Moody Blues. My best friend, Pamela, got me to go their show in Jones Beach in NY. I surprised that she was such a Moodies fan as she was a little bit more of a hard rocker back then.

Little did I know that that show would be the start of a long friendship with them. I later dated the producer of that song, Tony Visconti.  When we later married, Justin Hayward was our Best Man. Now I see their shows whenever they’re in town and I chuckle to myself when I remember how I balked at going to see them. I’ve made lots of friends through them over the years and I think the Moodies are one of the most underrated bands — and deserve to be in the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame. They have been together for 50 years, as Graham Edge says, and still sound fantastic!

 My friend Violet Benny invited me to this dinner tonight at the Natural Gourmet Institute. I’m so excited for this meal. #NGI  Before I left NJ, I was taken to breakfast @Amy’s Omelettes. What a place, great eggs and fabulous server to try and help me narrow down what I should order!  One more thing that Jesse Colin Young gave away tonight...this bag of coffee beans which I can’t wait to try it. #jessecolinyoungcoffee #dsminc #tobibar19 #thecuttingroomnyc
 @beacontheatre for fundraiser concert Love Rocks NYC! Waiting for the great music to start...Will Lee is MD and bandleader.  On my way to Monmouth University for a talk with Kenneth Womack. Should be a fun night. Ken talking about Sir George. Martin and me...well...can you guess???  Listening to stories by Jesse Colin Young at The Cutting Room. Feels like the old record days watching him speak. Can’t wait to see him perform. #jesseColinYoung #theyoungbloods #maypang
 Went down to the retail store that sells Nest Candles. I love their giant size diffusers. I won’t be running out of this stuff any time soon! The store is located on 252 Elizabeth Street in NYC if anyone wants to pick up some great smelling fragrance candles.  Here’s a motley crew. We were all at The Cutting Room for a one man play called 3 Egg Creams starring Vince Bandille. This play was inspired by & featuring the music of Lou Christie. Nice way to spend my Valentine’s Day. Left to right: Lou C, Ron (Lou’s drummer), Billy J Kramer, Q104.3 DJ Ken Dashow, me, Eddie & David Brigati (The Young Rascals & Joey Dee & the Starlighters.)  Tobi and I are at the Laurence and Chico Fashion Runway for their Fall/Winter 2019 collection. It’s packed here at Pier 59 at 2pm!
