Biography
Born on the March 30, 1941, in Rochester, Staffs, England, Graeme Edge was best known as the drummer for the Moody Blues, but also led his own outfit, the Graeme Edge Band, from time to time. Although Edge's love of boats and the sea almost made him decide on a different career path, he ultimately chose music, playing with local bands on a regular basis. Eventually, he received an invite from the Moody Blues, leading to the birth of one of prog rock's most enduring and beloved bands. In addition to his drumming duties, Edge also proved to be quite a skilled lyricist, penning the words to such Moody Blues tunes as "The Day Begins" and "Late Lament" from Days of Future Passed, "Departure" and "The Word" from In Search of the Lost Chord, and "In the Beginning" and "The Dream" from On the Threshold of a Dream (in addition to writing such songs as "Don't You Feel Small," "22,000 Days," "Going Nowhere," and "The Spirit"). During the mid-'70s, Edge formed the Graeme Edge Band, issuing a pair of albums, 1975's Kick Off Your Muddy Boots and 1977's Paradise Ballroom. 1978's Octave saw Edge returning to the Moody Blues, and he remained part of the band until his death on November 11, 2021 at the age of 80. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi
