I should be able to answer almost all questions about the Moody Blues` music from 1967 to present. I also know numerous other sources and experts on the Moody Blues, and can go to them if necessary as well as refer people to other helpful sites. I also know quite a bit about each member personally and their individual works.


I have been an intense fan of the Moody Blues for over 30 years. I have been to countless of their concerts (I stopped counting several years ago at 30). I have met the band on 3 occasions (My son met Justin Hayward when he was 5!) and have spoken with them personally.
