Moody Blues singer and flutist Ray Thomas has died last Thursday at the age of 76. The record labels Cherry Red Records and Esoteric Recordings released a statement saying: “We are deeply shocked by his passing and will miss his warmth, humour and kindness. It was a privilege to have known and worked with him and our thoughts are with his family and his wife, Lee, at this sad time.”

In 2014 Ray Thomas announced that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer on 2013. Specifically he said in his statement: “My cancer was inoperable but I have a fantastic doctor who immediately started me on a new treatment that has had 90% success rate. The cancer is being held in remission but I’ll be receiving this treatment for the rest of my life.”
