One Response to Remembering Tony Clarke August 2016

    Hi,
    In 1967 I remember seeing Tony in a picture on the back of the album cover of Days of Future Passed. As the “core seven” albums emerged Tony Clarke was always there as “the 6th Moodie”. Tony was as truly to the Moodies as was George Martin was to The Beatles. As many have said Tony was a kind gentleman. Tony shared his thoughts with me when I asked him about string as well as other voices to place on my mellotron tapes. In a live chat on Mike’s website Tony and I agreed on what we thought as “45RPM single feel” to a Pinder Brothers track.
    I recall that Tony said that he was touched that his loving daughter and his pal Mike Pinder shared the same December birthdate.
    Mike one time mentioned this, and I have a picture of in my minds eye, Tony sitting on a garden bench in Mike & Tara’s English-Califorina garden early in the morning talking to his wife timezones and miles away over in England back when Tony was helping the Pinder Brothers on an album there in old Grass Valley, California.
    Even when Tony became ill, looks like he lived a “it doesn’t get any better than this life”.
    Cheers to Tony.
    oldGeorge
