Singer says Moody Blues avoid labels
John Lodge sang it best himself in the chorus of the Moody Blues' 1972 hit, "I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)."
When he wrote it, he was probably referring to the power music has on people, not as a statement denying the categorization of his band.
"I don't know how you can put a label on the Moody Blues," the group's 65-year-old singing bassist says from a resort in Temecula, Calif. "People have been trying to do that since 1966."
