He was quoted as saying: “It was very, very painful for me. When it was over, I didn’t play it for years and years and years.

“I never played it. Not that I play our stuff much anyway, but I never played that one.

“And I hadn’t really heard it other than the [singles] from there until [2007 when] it first came out on CD and I had to listen to it digitized just to kind of say, ‘Yeah, that’s fine with me.

In 2018, the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

During a three-year hiatus from the band, he released his first solo single We Like To Do It / Shotgun in 1974.

The following year, he released his first solo album Kick Off Your Muddy Boots.

In addition to his work with the Moody Blues, the drummer also led his own, the Graeme Edge Band.

They released two albums in the mid-1970s.
