Denny Laine-"You're All Fired!"

Mr. Laine, who turned 75 in October, is possibly more famous for being Paul McCartney’s major musical partner in the highly successful band Wings during the 1970s, but Mr. Laine was there at The Iridium on Saturday to celebrate his first legendary rock band, the Moody Blues. The “Moodys” first came together at around the beginning of the British Invasion in 1964 - although they were from Birmingham, rather than London (like the Rolling Stones) or Liverpool (like the Beatles). Like a lot of major British bands, their original intention was to play American style blues and R&B, but eventually they became world-famous by creating their own original music and following their own path into what eventually became known as progressive rock.
