“I remember the first album I bought. Yes, I do. In fact, I remember the first single that I bought – it was ‘Giddy-Up-A-Ding-Dong’ by Freddie Bell and the Bellboys.

Graeme Edge celebrates his 71st birthday today, and he’ll be slipping behind his drum kit to fuel the Moody Blues as they bring their “The Voyage Continues: Highway 45” tour to Proctors in Schenectady at 8pm on Thursday (April 5). Tix are $20, $50, $60, $70 & $85.
