The Actor

Few musical groups have lasted as long as the Moody Blues. Even with the various personnel changes, Justin Hayward's beautiful melodies and evocative lyrics still call to me.

Great song, song-writer & performer!

Over time, the Moody Blues' work is holding up better than that of many of their contemporaries. Aging rockers often look a little ridiculous playing the songs that made them famous in their youth, but not these guys. Justin & co. had their moments of excess too, but so much of the music they've created has an uncommon timelessness and level of maturity about it.
