I hope Mike gets to read this personally.
Your talent, creativity, hard work and brass balls have really made a positive difference in the world, I wish you all the best all the time forever.
In high school, my first class started each day with your songs. Now, 45 years later, I end each and every evening listening to you on the Mellotron. No kidding. One of the lyrics you spoke, the”keep on thinking free” line, conscripted my spirit at 15 and has directed my life to this day!
“It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave”. I was listening to this so young I had to look up the word riles and perceive. (I think I was 6 or 7). Talk about influential!
I am a musician and Michael Pinder fan (Early Moody Blues, etc). In my solo set I play many unexpected songs. I am looking for the chords to Someone to Believe In. I’ve been playing along with The Promise for years. This one eludes me. Can anyone help me? Mike, are you there?
I too…since ‘A Question of Balance’…have realized: a) I’ll never tire of the first
seven Moodies albums, b) Mike is the ‘soul’ of the Moodies , c) Mike’s music/lyrics
are presented in a way that evokes all listeners to do what the music does, it encourages to – think beyond/wonder/think of higher things. My heartfelt appreciation/admiration/
encouragement to the Soulful Wiseman, Mr. Michael Pinder.
