Moody Blues drummer Graeme Edge dies age 80

Moody Blues frontman Justin Hayward has paid tribute to bandmate Graeme Edge, who has died at the age of 80.

He was the drummer in the Birmingham-based rock band, famous for such hits as Nights In White Satin and Tuesday Afternoon.

Mr Hayward said: "Graeme's sound and personality is present in everything we did together and thankfully that will live on." He described him as one of the "great characters of the music business".

Tributes flood in as Moody Blues drummer Graeme Edge dies aged 80

He first moved into the music industry himself as the manager of the Blue Rhythm Band and whilst he did try his hand at the drums from time to time, he only started playing the instrument professionally when he was forced to step in for the drummer, who had quit the group.

Moody Blues frontman Justin Hayward said: "When Graeme told me he was retiring, I knew that without him it couldn’t be the Moody Blues any more. And that’s what happened. It’s true to say that he kept the group together throughout all the years, because he loved it."

Many of their songs incorporated his spoken-word poetry, making them pioneers in the prog-rock movement of the late-1960s and ’70s.

In addition to drumming, Edge’s poems were often recited as part of album preludes

“To me he was the White Eagle of the North with his beautiful poetry.” (...) “His friendship, his love of life and his ‘unique’ style of drumming that was the engine room of the Moody Blues. … I will miss you, Graeme,” the band’s bassist, John Lodge, wrote on Facebook.

I have very fond memories of Graeme Edge.

As a young music enthusiast just starting out in music, I saw the original Moody Blues band many times in my hometown of Birmingham England, and Graeme was the driving force behind the band at that time. He was a talented musician whose presence will be greatly missed.
