by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

Ever since 1964 when Ray Thomas, Mike Pinder, Denny Laine,
Graeme Edge and Clint Warwick first performed as the Moody Blues,
the “marriage of classical and rock” has opened creative doors
and inspired musicians and music lovers on every shore.

Today Graeme Edge has reunited with pre-MB guitarist John Lodge
and “newest” vocalist Justin Hayward as the heart and soul of
the Moody Blues vibrant and driving sound.

Why have they been passed over by the voters in the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Is it because it is in Cleveland?
No. It is a Collective Error in judgment.  Of course.

Listen to this iconic song and then
do something about it. (below)

PLEASE INDUCT THE MOODY BLUES INTO THE
ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME

“The Story In Your Eyes” (listen on Youtube)

Year:1971
Written by: Justin Hayward (Guitar)
Album: Every Good Boy Deserves Favour

I’ve been thinking about our fortune
And I’ve decided that we’re really not to blame
For the love that’s deep inside us now
Is still the same

And the sounds we make together
Is the music to the story in your eyes
It’s been shining down upon me now
I realize

Listen to the tide slowly turning
Wash all our heartaches away
We’re part of the fire that is burning
And from the ashes we can build another day

But I’m frightened for your children
That the life that we are living is in vain
And the sunshine we’ve been waiting for
Will turn to rain

Listen to the tide slowly turning
Wash all our heartaches away
We’re part of the fire that is burning
And from the ashes we can build another day

But I’m frightened for your children
That the life that we are living is in vain
And the sunshine we’ve been waiting for
Will turn to rain

When the final line is over and
It’s certain that the curtain’s gonna fall
I can hide inside your sweet sweet love
For ever more
