Ray Thomas, Moody Blue, 1941-2018.

Ray Thomas, founding member of the Moody Blues, died last week.

I saw The Moody Blues at their first ever Australian concert in Melbourne, back in 1984. Great show. After twenty years on the road they were still fresh and dynamic. More dynamic than the audience in fact! We were all a little in awe of this great band.

The classic Moody Blues line-up that produced their best remembered albums during the 1960s and 1970s. From left: Mike Pinder, Justin Hayward, Ray Thomas, Graeme Edge, John Lodge.

Ray contributed many songs to the band’s repertoire, but Legend Of A Mind is his standout piece – he wrote, sang, and delivered one of his finest flute solos.

RIP. Ray.
