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