Did the moody blues do war of the worlds?
No but Justin Hayward sang 'forever autumn'
Justin Hayward did indeed sing Forever Autumn (as the sung thoughts
of the journalist portrayed by Richard Burton) but he also
performed on The Eve of the War. In addition, John Lodge was first
choice for Thunderchild but, after a couple of sessions, he ran out
of time and his role was taken by Chris Thompson instead - Lodge's
version can be heard on the rarities CD included in the 30th
anniversary release of War of the Worlds.
