The Moody Blues’ John Lodge on Positivity, Exploring His Past, and His Fascination with Space Travel

John Lodge of The Moody Blues hops on the line with Kyle Meredith to talk about his new solo EP, On Reflection. The legendary singer-bassist tells us about the lead single “The Sun Will Shine” and the emphasis that positivity plays within his music, and how he used the lockdown to explore his past for inspiration. Speaking of the past, this year marks 40 years for The Moody Blues album The Long Distance Voyager, and John discusses what draws musicians to write about space, especially as we find ourselves in an age of renewed interest. Lodge also talks live music, from the upcoming live LP The Royal Affair and After that spotlights his 2019 tour with Yes and Asia, to next year’s Flower Power Cruise that will see him play alongside Procol Harum, The Hollies, and The Zombies.
