Although they don't get nearly enough credit, the Moody Blues were—and are—an incredible band. They have a string of albums—from 's Days of Future Passed to 's Seventh Sojourn —that are just as groundbreaking, polished, substantial and powerful as anything released by any other rock band during that time. And we do mean any other rock band. They had it all, including an ace guitarist named Justin Hayward , who could write—and sing—the most beautiful, heart-crushing melodies, plus a talented bassist, John Lodge , who also wrote and sang some of the band's most memorable songs. Best of all, perhaps, is the fact that every member of the band's classic lineup—Hayward, Lodge, Ray Thomas, Graeme Edge and Mike Pinder —wrote and sang tunes that are now considered vital pieces of the band's classic to oeuvre. The Moody Blues, who are still helmed by Lodge, Edge and Hayward whose voice, like that of the Monkees' Micky Dolenz and Bad Company's Paul Rodgers, simply laughs in the face of age , are currently hitting the road to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Days of Future Passed. That's the album—recorded with the London Festival Orchestra —that spawned "Tuesday Afternoon" and "Nights in White Satin"—lush, sweet-sounding songs that turned out to be just the tip of the Moodies' innovative, complex and ornate iceberg.
