In part two of our 2017 interview with the lateMoody Blues drummer, he discusses the band's longevity and their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
uDiscover Music talks to the ever-present drummer with the Moody Blues in the first of a two-part feature.
‘Seventh Sojourn’ was a record full of classic Moodies songs, and it was America’s favorite album for five weeks.
It was no instant success, but gradually, the group's new marriage of pop and orchestral ingredients began to turn heads.
The song hit the UK chart on 20 August 1983, on the eve of the band's 11th studio album ‘The Present.’
In the summer of 1971, the band topped the British bestsellers with an album that contained no chart singles at all.
'A Question Of Balance' included the big hit 'Question,' as 1970 saw the Moodies go from strength to strength.
Their 1968 album 'In Search Of The Lost Chord' provided the real commercial breakthrough for the band's new album-oriented sound.
The Moodies hit their stride with a memorable fourth album in the final year of the 1960s.
The group's 1972 preview of their upcoming 'Seventh Sojourn' was one of their finest hours.
The group’s destiny turned in a new direction with their January 1968 UK chart entry.
The album was released during the group's five-year hiatus that followed 1972's Seventh Sojourn and before the reunion that led to Octave in 1978.
The prog-rock legends will be joined by Asia, John Lodge of The Moody Blues and Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy.
After five more US concerts , Lodge will be back in his home country for dates in Milton Keynes and London in April 2019.
Seven final names are added to the bill for the February 2019 excursion.
