The Moody Blues have been my favorite band since high school, and I have seen them live at least a dozen times, dating as far back as 1982/1983 when they toured for The Present, and the opening act was Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble. It has been a few years since I last saw them (at the Tower Theater I believe), and I am anxious to see them while they are still touring.
A few recent YouTube clips of concert footage from this year:
- The Story in Your Eyes. The perfect song. Great lyrics, great melody, great little guitar solo.
- You and Me. A song I have never seen live. Apparently I will soon...
- Peak Hour. A lesser known cut from their very first album, Days of Future Passed, from 1967.
- Say It With Love, from Keys of the Kingdom.
- Just a Singer in a Rock and Roll Band. Classic.
- And thrown in for a chuckle, Gypsy, and Tuesday Afternoon from the Isle of Wight festival in 1970... Note that Justin is playing the exact same Gibson cherry red ES-335 in all these clips...
