Gordy's book to be published later this year
May 10: Moody Blues backup drummer Gordy Marshall will be releasing his long-awaited book in September 2012. Entitled Postcards From A Rock & Roll Tour, this book features a collection of amusing and insightful anecdotes compiled from over 20 years of touring with the band. Gordy's Postcards began as a series of blog posts during the Summer 2010 tour, and they proved so popular that the decision was made last year to publish them. Graeme has provided the foreword. Visit this site to pre-order your copy...shipping is free, and for a small extra charge Gordy will sign it for you!
Spring 2012 tour
March 11: The Moodies kicked off their Spring 2012 tour with a performance at the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida. Early reports indicate that the band has added four new songs to the setlist: Gemini Dream, You And Me, Say It With Love and Nervous. They have removed Lean On Me, Gypsy and Meanwhile.
Backing the band are Gordy Marshall, Alan Hewitt, Norda Mullen and Julie Ragins. There's also a new item at the merchandise table this year: autographed copies of Graeme's new book, The Written Works Of Graeme Edge. This collection of poetry and stories from the band's history was compiled and edited by Gordy Marshall, who is also working on a book of his own.
Moody News closing up shop
June 2011: Unfortunately, I'm no longer able to maintain the News section of my site. The rest of the content will remain, and I do plan to keep it updated with my own photos and reviews. I may also post some news occasionally, but for now, time constraints prevent from giving the News section the attention it deserves.
