Gregg Allman isn't the only rocker with local ties releasing a book this spring.

Downtown Bradenton resident Graeme Edge also has one coming out to coincide with his band The Moody Blues' 32-city U.S. tour “The Moody Blues: The Voyage Continues – Highway 45,” celebrating the 45th anniversary of the prog-rock group's pioneering breakthrough album "Days of Future Passed."

In conjunction with the tour, drummer Edge, poetic-lyricist for the band since the release of “Days of Future Passed,” will issue “The Written Works of Graeme Edge.”

The book will include poems written by Edge, including his lyrics from the band’s many albums, preceded by recollections and stories of their recordings. The book will cover Edge’s “Morning Glory – Late Lament” from the “Days” album recorded in 1967, to “22,000 Days” from the “Long Distance Voyager” album recorded in 1981 to “Nothing Changes” from “Strange Times,” the band’s last studio release in 1999, and more, and will be available exclusively on the tour

The tour kicks off March 11 at Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood (Fla.). Dates, VIP experience details and on sale information are available through the Moody Blues’ official website.
