STEPPIN' THROUGH A TIME ZONE! - 2014
This section celebrates everything Moody Blues through providing an amazing factoid and a Moody myth-busting reality check.
OUR GUESSING GAME - YESTERDAY'S ANSWER
On 1st February 2014, John Lodge performed with Sir Cliff Richard at a Barbados charity event. Apart from music and their faith, what else connects the two men? Both have produced their own wines (Vida Nova and Krisemma respectively).
HAVE YOU HEARD?
Did you know that while John Lodge has performed with Sir Cliff Richard (at a charity gig in Barbados), one other Moody has recorded with the music knight? Justin Hayward was one of the singers involved in the 1989 charity recording of Everybody’s Got a Crisis in Their Life, in aid of leukaemia, which also prominently featured Sir Cliff.
NO MORE LIES
Myth: The Moody Blues famously went down a storm at the Isle of Wight festival in 1970 and their 2014 cruise Return to the Isle of Wight will see the boat circling the small British island. Reality: No. The climate is too cold for such a cruise to be successful (early April). The title of the cruise merely means that the concept is to include bands that played at the original festival and look at the Moodies material of the era.
And there we have it! 50 years of the Moody Blues, 50 questions to tease you, 51 amazing facts from the band's long history and 51 myths thoroughly debunked!
Here's to the next Moody anniversary milestone!!
2014 The Moody Blues, in this 50th year of their existence as a band, continue to be a popular attraction with legions of adoring fans more than happy to see them play live, sail on cruises dedicated to them, follow and discuss them and their music on fan boards and fan pages and purchase the music and videos that they produce.
So what is happening in 2014 with the band and its members? As of this writing:
Did you cruise with the band this year? Did you see Justin on his "Spirits" 2014 tour?
And what of the future? The band has been talking about having a special celebration in 2016, the 50th anniversary of Justin and John joining the Moody Blues. Also, John also has a brand new album coming out which is tentatively scheduled for a March, 2015 release. What would YOU like to see happen in regards to the Moody Blues? A concert tour with sets composed of entire albums? A new Moodies album or two? Or simply that they remain healthy and happy and go on entertaining us for many years to come? All of the above?
What are YOUR Moody Blues plans for the rest of this year? Do you intend to see them in concert? Have you pre-ordered Justin's live DVD? Will you purchase John's remixed album or have you already done so? Please tell us what your plans are, and whatever you do this year, remember it's a special year for a very special band, so enjoy it to the fullest!

Is there going to be a separate "Tab" where all of these posting will be consolidated?
There is a ton of info I need to get back and re-read.
I'd like to see another Graeme and Gordy book or two along with a couple new CD's by the band.
My ultimate request would be a multi disc (CD & DVD versions) of every song the band, Blue Jays, and solo concerts that have been done live.
