Are you sure that it wasn't more than just starstruck!  ha2ha

One doesn't get the chance to speak to a legend every day, BF.

When I was a resident doing my anesthesia rotation, I was assigned to the OR where Frank Sinatra was about to have some polyps removed from his vocal cords.  He looked at me and said to my attending "I don't want no kid putting me to sleep!"  I said so long and left the room.    ha2ha

He'll take you up, he'll bring you down,
He'll plant your feet back on the ground.
He'll fly so high, he'll swoop so low.
Timothy Leary.
 
He'll fly his astral plane.
He'll take you trips around the bay.
He'll bring you back the same day.
Timothy Leary.
Timothy Leary!

Rays voice is brilliant, better than John & Justins imo

a thought entered my head, wonder if he was like George and had to struggle to get tracks on albums and have his songs put on the set list at concerts ?

somebody told that Mike Pinder refused to go on the Octave tour because of this and then left the band

only Graeme now stops it being the Justin & John show (or the Blue Jays)  ;)

Great shame Mike Pinder (the mystical one) left, his mellotron work and songs/poetry I loved

songs like this are what made the Moody's albums of the 70's so great;

THE MOODY BLUES' music is so unique, there is not a band that sounds like them. One thing that I've noticed about the 1960's bands is that every band had their own unique trademark sound. THE MOODY BLUES had their own unique sound just like THE BEATLES, THE KINKS, THE STONES, FLEETWOOD MAC, THE BEACH BOYS, CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL, THE WHO, LED ZEPPELIN, BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE and CREAM, just to name a few, had their own unique trademark sounds. None of these bands copied each other or sounded like anyone else. That's what makes these bands great and unique. Take care.

actually there is BF, one of my favourite bands of the last 40 or so years is Barclay James Harvest, they sold tons of albums in Germany/Holland/France/Sweden but were totally ignored in theyre native Britain and all other English speaking countries

have a listen;

Barclay James Harvest - Mocking Bird

How's it going mate? WOW, I'm totally floored mate! What really surprises me is that I have never heard of BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST. BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST does sound alot like THE MOODY BLUES, I never thought that any band could ever sound like THE MOODY BLUES! I'm going to have to check this band out, thanks for letting me know about BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST. Take care.

It sounds like something Mike Pinder would have written.

Barclay James Harvest Poor man`s moody blues
