    OMG, what a bunch of grumps we have this morning. It’s just music and the HOF, it’s all good.

    I'm 67, and experience has taught me why many older people are grumpy;)

    Love the MB. Got into them in the early 80's when they released their "comeback album" Long Distance Voyager. Then we all dug back into them with their amazing compilation "This is the Moody Blues" which covers main bulk or their albums (prior to their super pop mid 80's comeback which I don't like as much). Love Justin Hayward's playing style and that red ES335!

    All in all, some good ones this year. Moody Blues, Cars and Dire Straits. Better than most years.

    For Bon Jovi..

    This is the thread for the broken hearted.
    Favorite old bands with some hits that charted.
    Most of the guys are now old and gray
    hoping their fav's will make it one day.

    Hall of fame, its now or never
    these bands ain't gonna last for ever
    I hope they win while I'm alive

    Hall of fame it's now or never
    these bands have been around for ever
    I just hope they win before they die.
    Hall of fame....

    :)

    I think Moody Blues were never intended to be listened to without stuff to enhance that experience.

    Is this supposed to be sung to the tune of some Bon Jovi tune or other?

    Which is funny because I think they were a pretty straight-laced band when it came to those sort of extracurricular activities. :D

    It's funny that I ran across this post I'm listening to Every Good Boy Deserves Favour at the moment.
