She added on July, the news saddened the family and his close ones. He tried to fight with it as long as he could but failed at this point.
In 2016 he said he had a stroke, and for years the second drummer replaced him on the stage. He got retired from The Moody band in 2019.
Graeme was married to Carol Edge in 1969. But they got separated the following year, and he remarried to Susan Edge in 1970 itself.
In 2018, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with the rest of the band. For almost seven decades, he influenced Mood Blues.
With their classics like Nights in White Satin and Days of Future Passed they hit the charts. The Wildest Dreams reached number nine in the US charts in 1986.
Nights in White Satin became hit second time as well, when it was re-released in 1972, reaching number nine in the UK charts.
