Never reaching the end

Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues, interviewed by J. Poet in the April Discoveries, on the eternal verities of "Nights in White Satin":

I remember being in a karaoke bar in Venice with my wife Marie one night, and a bloke got up and did "Nights" and brought the house down. I was a bit peeved and thought briefly about standing up and saying, "I wrote that song," but nobody would have believed me.

And how do you follow that, anyway?

I decided to follow him with "My Funny Valentine," and I died.

Breathe deep the gathering gloom.
