Moody Blues singer finds new expression
"The future is always in reach, but the past is gone forever," says musician John Lodge on a call from his Barbados home. This simple truth informed the Moody Blues vocalist/bassist as he recorded last year's solo album "10,000 Light Years Ago."
The album represents a career spent in pursuit of sound. At turns deeply psychedelic and simplistically folklike, "Light Years" represents different facets of Lodge's songwriting prowess, while holding to his progressive rock roots.
