  1. Thanks to Graeme for joining Alicia and Brian!
    Love the stories! Especially the one about Carnegie Hall!
    We’ll be watching you as long as you play, Gray!
    Oh, Alicia, I wish I could meet you, and see your band play!

    1. Darilee – I wish I could meet you too, & that you could see our band play! Maybe one day… Meanwhile, I’m so glad you enjoyed the episode!

  2. love the moodies and loved this interview……… to see mike and ray get with other lads for the 50th year in 2017……many .thanks

    1. Alan – at the risk of repeating myself, I’m so happy you enjoyed the podcast! I love the Moodies too – I could see them every night & it would still never be enough. Who knows… maybe Ray will join them in 2017, although according to Graeme, it seems doubtful that Mike would. Fingers crossed, though.

    1. Thanks, Barry! 🙂 Yep, Brian wrote that song to be in the vein of the Moodies, & I think he hit the nail right on the head with that one!

  8. Just caught this in the wake of Gray’s passing. Great chat. I first saw the band in our home town, Birmingham, in December 1969. I’ve been a fan for most of my life. Beautiful people. Thanks for posting this.
