Edge was a member of the Moody Blues from its formation in 1964, when he briefly introduced future Wings member Denny Laine, who appears on their first hit “Go Now,” until his death; When Lodge and Hayward teamed up after Laine’s departure in 1966, Edge was the only Moody Blue to be a member of the band’s entire existence, although the drummer retired from touring in 2019.

Family

Edge was born in Rocester, Staffordshire, in 1941, and soon after moved to Birmingham with his family, the official Moody Blues website said.

He later teamed up with Ray Thomas and Mike Pinder to form Moody Blues in 1964.

Mr. Hayward said: “When Graeme told me he was retiring, I knew that without him I couldn’t be more of the Moody Blues.

“And that’s what happened. It’s true that he held the group together all the years, because he loved it.”

Graeme Edge and the Moody Blues

The Moody Blues recorded music between 1964 and 2003

“Graeme and his parents were very nice to me when I first joined the group, and for the first two years he and I lived together or side by side,” Hayward said.

“We had fun and laughed all the time, as well as making what was probably the best music of our lives.”

“When Denny Laine left, it almost broke the band,” Edge told Rolling Stone in 2018. “We had to get a new lead vocalist and [bassist] John [Lodge] came in. That’s when we started to reorganize and rethink our address.”

“In the late sixties we became the group that Graeme always wanted us to be, and he was called upon to be a poet and a drummer,” added Hayward. “He delivered it beautifully and brilliantly as he created an atmosphere and a setting that music would never have achieved without his words.”
