British Rail porter Alice Eades steps out of the way as 'The Moody Blues' give travellers using Holborn Viaduct Station a sample of their music before the group boarded a special train for a round trip to Victoria.

This doesn't look like the Moody Blues to me. Have been a lifetime fan.

Denny Laine (Brian Hines) has smartened his hair up here. Doesn't look like Bev Bevan on the drums though. Different from when my husband was with them.
Definitely The Moody Blues, pre- Justin Hayward. L. to R. Denny Laine, guitar, vocals - Ray Thomas, vocals, flute, percussion, harmonica - Clint Warwick, bass, vocals - Mike Pinder, keyboards, vocals - Graeme Edge, drums, percussion, vocals.I saw this band many times at the 'Casino Club' Walsall and was there when they played their newly released record 'Go Now' to an audience, for the first time.For me, the best band around at the time. Happy memories.

Yeah, I recognised them straight away. Ivused to to go the Carlton Club, High Street, Erdington on Sunday afternoons with them while they jammed. Graeme was a neighbours nephew. I guess I was lucky to live on the village as Erdington High Street was known. I saw a great many bands there.
I was at Paget Road senior school when they were no 1 with Go Now, went to Ray Thomas's house his mom called us in for autographs I would have been about 12 years old, happy days what a great track
I went to Paget too Ann but I bit before your time Ray Thomas also went there & he was with El Riot & the Rebels before the Moodies with my ex Husband

Oh, I thought it was El Riot and the Raiders. Shows I am getting old. I remember Denny Laine when he had a band, The Diplomats. As Ann Barrett says, happy days.

I grew up living next door to Ray Thomas, I was best friends with his sister Yvonne.I remember when they were El Riot and the Rebels - Ray was El Riot - and they were going to appear on Lunch Time with Noele Gordon. They spent hours practicing in Ray's parents house - it adjoined our house - until we were all utterly fed up with Ray's version of Blue Moon. Even his mother came round to our house to try to get away from the noise - didn't work though, we could still hear them through the wall.

In about 1967 my parents were living in Moseley and they responded to a classified ad offering for sale a dining room table and chairs in the Quinton area. My father informs me that the vendor was none other than the late Nicky James. My parents divorced in the 1970s but my father still uses the table and chairs in a corner of his conservatory in Solihull today. They are that oval-shaped, mid-brown coloured style with black seat coverings that was popular in the latter half of the 1960s.
