Ray started as an engineer, clocking in and working in factories.
The Moody Blues came into being as the M & B Five,
Mitchell & Butler Breweries were going to sponser a band with the initials M & B,
but they didn't so the band received no money.
Ray formed the Moody Blues and is a lover of Symphonic sound
as well as rock 'n' roll, Ray's solid voice provides
the Moody Blues harmonies with a
melodic middle while his flute is nothing short of haunting.
Ray is his own biggest critic and he says 'I have to live with me and play for myself'.
Compositions for the Moodies include:-
FROM MIGHTY OAKS
HOPES, WISHES & DREAMS
