One major difference between Mr. Lightfoot and Mr. Hayward is that Gordon has said he's done with songwriting and recording. He pretty much plans to keep touring until he can't do it anymore physically. Justin, as we know, keeps writing and recording, even if he rarely releases anything. I have been quite surprised that as a professional songwriter and recording artist since his late teens, he hasn't been more proactive about that aspect of his career. I personally have to assume the MB brand is so good to him and everyone else drawing paychecks, that he doesn't want to mess with the formula. The boys long ago could have released an album digitally, and offered a download of a cd style front and back cover and booklet and put in on Amazon, iTunes, their own web site, but nothing. I am perplexed about that. But if the new Justin cd is as good as "View From The Hill", I'll be happy.

I’m pretty confident that I can answer just about any question about the band or their music you may have. I’ve been a fan since 1972 and have followed their careers (collectively and as solo artists,) closely ever since. In addition, I've amassed a vast database on all things Moody - from "completest" discographies for the band and all of their solo projects, to extensive bibliographies, videographies, posterfiles, etc. I have an extensive collection of memorabilia; both group and related solo projects. My collection includes vinyl, CDs, tapes (cassette, 8-track, and reel,) posters, shirts, sheet music and songbooks, back stage passes, magazines, books and other publications, equipment, and video. If I don’t know it, I know where to find it. All you have to do is ask!


I’ve been a fan of the band since 1972. I was a contributing editor to "Higher and Higher", the Moody Blues Magazine 1994, to the magazine’s untimely demise in 2007, writing the Videography Department.

As noted previously, much of my writing has appeared in “Higher and Higher” since 1994, but I also wrote a piece that appeared in issue #1 of Mike Pinder’s newsletter “Have You Heard”.

Though I haven’t yet finished, my educational focus is on a Journalism degree.

Awards and Honors
I've also had the good fortune to have traveled to England to catch the end of the Band's Spring 2000 concert tour; a trip I've always wanted to take. I’ve supplied research information on the band to a number of sources, including the July 5, 2004 English Quiz Show “Mastermind” which featured a contestant whose expertise was also the Moody Blues. I also participated in the UK Channel 4 presentation of the “Top Ten” program's episode on Progressive Rock, that featured the Moody Blues at #3 on their list. That program aired on March 3, 2001.
