Was a massive Moodies fan for a few years and Graeme's poetry was always something I enjoyed. RIP Graeme

We don't talk about their '67 - '72 work enough.
it's weird how carlsson has managed to get wilson over a barrel and then persuade him to let the rest of the PROG goons perform anal chugs on him in said position.

my point is that wilson has sold his arse cheaply. it's embarrassing to read.

Maybe he'll finally be able to find that confounded lost chord now.

I saw that on the 50th anniversary tour of 'Days of Future Passed' tour they had a second drummer to help with the faster stuff while Edge mainly just played the beats. Seemed reasonable to me, as you can't expect a guy in his 70's to have the energy and endurance of his youth, but apparently he was already pretty ill by that time, requiring supplemental oxygen. He still played that big snare accent before the flute solo in "Night in White Satin." The Moodies were one of a fairly select group of bands I listened to all the time around the time I was learning drums, so I learned a lot by listening to him.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

A bit of a wishy washy band. But listenable.
