In 2013, a Rolling Stone reader poll listed the Moody Blues as one of the top 10 bands that need to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. So, whether you are a fan of progressive rock Moodies from the 1960s, the band’s synthesizer-driven rock sounds of the 1980s, or have recently seen them playing for multiple generations of rock and roll fans, one thing is clear – the Moody Blues have created more than 50 years of exhilarating and significant music.   

Says Graeme Edge: “I want to thank all of my peers who bestowed the honor of voting us in. Most of all, I’d like to thank all of our fans who have supported us over the years, and have steadfastly stood by us. I would also like to thank the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame foundation for putting a cap on my career; one that continues to astonish me with its gifts.

During this time period, The Moodies released their Gold-selling boxed set collection entitled TIME TRAVELLER , a greatest hits package in 1997 entitled THE BEST OF THE MOODY BLUES , and a double-CD ANTHOLOGY album.  The group welcomed the new Millennium with the release of the appropriately titled STRANGE TIMES , which was their first studio album in eight years, charting yet again in the Top 100 on Billboard .  Recorded in Genoa, Italy, the band took on the role of “producers” of the album, another first for the The Moodies.

Meanwhile, a significant part of their audience didn't think of the Moody Blues merely as musicians but, rather, as spiritual guides. John Lodge 's song "I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock & Roll Band)" was his answer to this phenomenon, renouncing the role that had been thrust upon the band -- it was also an unusually hard-rocking number for the group, and was also a modest hit single. Ironically, in 1972, the group was suddenly competing with itself when "Nights in White Satin" charted again in America and England, selling far more than it had in 1967; that new round of single sales also resulted in Days of Future Passed selling anew by the tens of thousands.
