John Lodge of the Moody Blues will be at Rams Head On Stage on March 3rd

| February 03, 2020, 10:47 AM

John Lodge is a bass guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter for the iconic Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 2018 inductees, The Moody Blues. Songwriter of such mega Moody Blues hits from “Ride My SeeSaw,” to “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock and Roll Band),” “Isn’t Life Strange?” and many more. Lodge has been performing and recording with The Moody Blues for more than five decades, selling in excess of 70 million albums and will be coming to the Rams Head On Stage on March 3rd.

Liquified Creative Annapolis

Lodge has been voted one of the “10 most influential bass players on the planet,” and has been the recipient of many awards, including ASCAP (American Society of Composers and Publishers), an Ivor Novello Award, to name just a few.

Following his successful North America run this summer as part of YES’ “The Royal Affair Tour”, John Lodge returns to the US for another round of shows starting February 15.

His latest  LP of a brand new release, B YOND – THE VERY BEST OF has been released in North America  and streaming and digital versions are available now.

For this album Lodge went back into the studio to totally recreate “Street Café”, “(Evening) Time to Get Away” and “Legend of a Mind”, with the wonderful musicians of the 10,000 Light Years Band.  The tracks were co-produced by John and Alan Hewitt, and features John on his original Fender Precision Bass which he recorded all of the classic Moody Blues songs on.  He is joined by Hewitt on keyboards, Duffy King on guitars, Billy Ashbaugh on drums and Jason Charboneau on Cello. The result is a fresh modern feel while still retaining the original magic of these songs. Legend of a Mind was particularly important for John to include on this album as it is his tribute to his friend Ray Thomas.

“With this album I want to share with you my ‘deep cuts’, songs that I have wanted to revisit, and songs which have become an important part of my life. It is this which has taken me back into the studio, to share with you my music and record again with my Fender Precision Bass.” said Lodge.

“I will be performing all of the classic Moody Blues songs of mine of course “Isn’t Life Strange,” “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock and Roll Band),” “Ride my See-Saw,” “ Gemini Dream” and last year I started to do tributes to other band members such as”Sunset” for Mike Pinder and “Legend of a Mind” as a tribute to Ray Thomas.  And of course the spoken word recited by Graeme Edge last year, which is wonderful.  I’ve also got some other surprises in the set.  The Moodies may never perform these songs again, and I just want to keep the Moody Blues music alive, music that has been an integral part of my life, and hopefully music that the fans continue to enjoy ………Thank you for Keeping the Faith.”

Lodge will be in Annapolis on March 3rd at the Rams Head On Stage and tickets are available now!
