One of my top three favourite Bands of all time, possibly my #1.

Skip to 5m40sec to see Ray do an intro to Tuesday Afternoon.

I am Sad.

He was just a singer in a rock and roll band.
And a really good one!
Sad news.

And the avalanche of Rock and Roll deaths continues.

I saw an interview with Carl Palmer a few weeks ago- in the past year he lost 3 band-mates: Keith Emerson (suicide), Greg Lake (cancer) and John Wetton (cancer).

I think Ray Thomas is only the second member of the Moody Blues to pass away after Mike Pinder.

And they will be inducted into R & R Hall of Fame in April. About time.

I am adding to my bucket list to see many singers/bands of the 1970s before they die.

+1. Love their work from the late 1960's and early 1970's when I was in college. A very talented bunch. My favorite composition of his was "The Balance" in 1970.

Whoops! Pinder is still alive! Don't know where I got the idea he had died. So is Denny Laine (an original member before Justin Hayward and John Lodge).

Days of future passed.

All time great.

Wife and I saw them in Dallas when we were dating.
Great date, at the old Starplex, summer of '87.

Putting the CD in my truck now.
