Today All Things Considered Honolulu Host Dave Lawrence continues the series.

The Moody Blues’ original bassist and vocalist John Lodge has been with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members from the beginning in the 1960s. But he’s got an unusual story relating to the coronavirus. The British musician was in Florida visiting his family when the pandemic travel ban trapped him in the United States. He put his time to good use, though, writing and recording a new song! He even roped in family members and a member of the band Yes to help out, as he explains in our interview.

John explained how it all happened, and shared details of his daily routine there, plus gave an update on what his Moody Blues bandmates are up to.
