Despite the coming and going of members, The Moody Blues have remained a popular and venerated rock band since the mid sixties, selling over 70 million records and receiving 14 gold and platinum discs. Their music has been wildly successful with singles like “Nights in White Satin” and “I’m Just a Singer (in a Rock n’ Roll Band)”
1964 was the founding year for The Moody Blues. A decade of growth, skyrocketing fame, and incredible international tours left The Moody Blues in need of an extended break. The group took a three year hiatus to do solo work, but in 1977 came back in full force and have been churning out more hits and international tours for the past 30 years.
Current members Justin Hayward, John Lodge, and Graeme Edge may have gray hair, but that doesn’t hold them back from performing insanely entertaining live shows. They’re definitely some of the hardest rocking 60-somethings ever. Their discography reads an impressive sixteen studio albums long and an extensive list of compilation albums. Their dedication to producing consistently authentic and stylistic rock music time and time again is outstanding in a world where many pop-rock artists seem to drift in style wherever the musical fads take them.
