Moody Blue's Mike Pinder And The Mellotron

During their time, the Moody Blues were very musically influential for their use of an orchestra with their music, but also for using one of the first simulations of an orchestra with an instrument called the Mellotron, played by the vastly underrated Mike Pinder. In the following movie, Mike describes how he used the instrument in the band and a bit of how it works.

The second movie is an interview that Mike did in Los Angeles in 2010 where he answers questions, plays some famous parts that you'll instantly recognize, and describes the Moody's influence on The Beatles.
