Moody Blues Co-Founder Denny Laine ‘Very Pleased’ To Be Added To Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Roster

After initially not included in The Moody Blues roster for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2018, co-founder Denny Laine said he’s happy that he’s now been added and will be part of the group’s entry on April 14 in Cleveland.  Laine — who co-founded the Moodys during 1964 in Birmingham, England, but left after the group’s 1965 debut album and the hit “Go Now” — said “obviously, I’m very pleased I’m going to be in there. It’s an honor. I think I’m at least a little part of their story, so I feel very content, really, that it’s all come full circle now.”  Laine was added to the induction roster thanks to lobbying by Rock Hall voting committee members, including Little Steven Van Zandt, Peter Asher and Cousin Brucie Morrow. Van Zandt said that Laine’s “inadvertent omission is being corrected on the Rock Hall website as we speak.”
