Saturday Evening Post, Vol 3, #38: RIP Graeme Edge

 It was with some dismay that my morning newspaper had an announcement that Moody Blues drummer Graeme Edge passed away earlier this week.

Another milepost of our youth gone from our sight.   Bummer.

In any case I will post this video which shows his performance off to good effect.  I heard a story years ago that the Moodies work was looked upon with such awe that their fans thought the group obviously had the answers to every thing that ailed the world: war, famine, political upheavel, etc.   The band responded with this work.   

No,  they didn't have the answers, but please let them know if you do.

Fifty years and the answer still eludes us.

R.I.P. Mr Edge.

(Thank you for reading and watching.)

Those who survived the 70's, are not entering their 70's.

It is a sad thing to discover our artists have died.

Perhaps the solution to this problem is to stop reading the paper?

Love them. Saw them with a full orchestra at Target Center here in Minneapolis ages ago. Such a great evening. Time... keeps rolling on...

They were fabulous, Debra.

And time marches on, Travel.

Yes, Spo, very sad, but survivable.

Not read the newspapers, Old Lurker? We might as well start wearing MAGA hats now and make the transition to ignorance complete.

I saw them several times, Upton. Once in Philly, once in Atlantic City and there may have been another venue I forgot./
