    Default RIP Ray Thomas of the Moody Blues

    Saddened to hear of the passing of Ray Thomas. We took our Dad to see the Moody Blues at the Royal Albert Hall a few years ago. Ostensibly. Really we wanted to see them ourselves and only realised afterwards that Dad had no Moody Blues albums ... but we did.

    Rolling Stone has posted several videos of his songs. I'm enjoying his wonderful baritone voice on "For My Lady."

    OMG no!!! I love that man and was looking forward to the RRHOF hoping to see him perform. For My Lady is such an amazing song and no one can or ever will sing it as beautifully as Ray.

    Oh, no. RIP.
    I, too, was looking forward to the RRHOF to see them.

    I saw Ray twice with the Moody Blues back in the 80s. He was a wonderful flautist, singer & songwriter. I urge people to check out the final suite from the Long Distance Voyager album where he's the 'veteran cosmic rocker' and 'he's afraid that he will die'. So sad.
