Justin Hayward

Justin Hayward (b. Swindon, October 14, 1946; full name David Justin Hayward) got his first guitar at age nine. In 1965, he joined pre-Beatles English rocker Marty Wilde as a member of his backing band, the Wild Cats. By the end of 1965, Hayward had four songs that he felt ready to record on his own, which led him to former skiffle king-turned-producer Lonnie Donegan. Released by Pye Records on the last day of 1965, Hayward's solo recording debut, "London Is Behind Me," failed to make an impact on the charts. The follow-up, "I Can't Face the World Without You," was released by Parlophone on August 26, 1966 with similar results. It was at this same time that Hayward answered Eric Burdon's ad for a lead guitarist. But Burdon had already filled the spot, and instead recommended him to the Moody Blues, who were in the market for a new guitarist/singer to replace the recently departed Denny Laine. After meeting with the band, Hayward joined the Moody Blues to complete their best-known lineup. For the first six months, the group continued with the R&B-based repertoire that they'd been known for prior to Hayward's arrival. Gradually, however, they began to work new songs into their stage act and their recording schedule, which took a big jump when the group was picked by Decca/London Records to participate in a stereo-demonstration record mixing rock and orchestral sounds. The resulting album, Days of Future Passed (1967), revived the band's fortunes, not least through the success of Hayward's now signature songs "Nights in White Satin" and "Tuesday Afternoon." This lush, romantic style would become the basis for the band's sound over the next seven years and while each member contributed songs and lead vocals, Hayward essentially became established as the group's primary singer and songwriter, penning classics like "Lovely to See You," "The Story in Your Eyes," and "New Horizons." After the band went on hiatus in 1974, Hayward and bassist John Lodge recorded the duo album Blue Jays, spawning the 1975 hit "Blue Guitar," which featured a backing track by the band 10cc. Hayward's career as a solo artist began in 1977 with the release of Songwriter, which displayed a somewhat leaner and more lively, acoustically textured sound than his work with the Moodies. He struck gold globally with the Top Ten hit "Forever Autumn" in 1978 as part of Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds album, and then released his second solo album, Night Flight, in 1980. During the next several years, Hayward devoted much of his attention to the revived Moody Blues, who had a full touring and recording schedule in front of them. A third solo outing, Moving Mountains, arrived in 1985 and was strongly reminiscent of his early-'70s style. In the late '80s, the Moodies scored a pair of hits with the Hayward-penned "Your Wildest Dreams" and "I Know You're Out There Somewhere," marking the band's last major chart successes. Hayward continued to record throughout the '90s with solo releases like the orchestral Classic Blue (1989), and later The View from the Hill (1996) and Live in San Juan Capistrano (1998). The Moody Blues remain a popular concert draw and Hayward, along with John Lodge and drummer Graeme Edge, comprise the remaining original portion of the band's lineup. In 2005, Hayward was awarded ASCAP's Golden Note Award for British songwriters, and in 2013 he received his second Ivor Novello award from the Performing Rights Agency in the U.K. That same year, he released Spirits of the Western Sky, his first solo album since 1996. A year later, he followed it up with the live acoustic album Spirits…Live. ~ Timothy Monger & Bruce Eder

Not a serious contemporary artist? God almighty. What is wrong with these idiots? This man is one of, (if not the greatest) song writer(s) in music history. I mean think about it, both Justin and TMB have been performing music through 6 different decades. The Crock and Roll Hall of Shame notwithstand i n g , how can anyone make such a stupid comment? Look at the repertoire. Look at the body of work. Sit down and listen to Blue Jays or To Our Children's Children's Children , then talk to me.

I've seen Justin solo twice in last year and was in awe of seeing him so close and personal…..I couldn't believe he was at this little bar…..voice not quite the same but still awesome….my only complaint was that he did almost the exact same set both times a year apart…..I will go again if he comes back but hope he changes it up a little there are so many songs I would love to hear…moodys lucky the day they met him…..I've always been kind of in love with him……especia l l y like his older stuff...

Just saw him in solo concert last week. Truly an amazing artist -- a wonderful rapport with the audience -- like old friends chatting.

I have been to many concerts, but I must say that the 3/21/14 Moody Blues concert at the Fox Theater in Atlanta was my absolute favorite of any! I was able to go up to the front and drool over Justin and John! I know Justin looked at me as I was yelling my head off and dancing like a fool! It truly WAS my wildest dream FULFILLED! I'm STILL on a cloud!!! Justin Hayward is all that and MORE!!! Damn, he's fine, too! :)

The bio is correct as it refers to solo work; working with John Lodge on Blue Jays was NOT solo work.

Love, love, love this album. I remember when it came out around 1975 and could not wait to get it in my hands and play it! I crushed mostly on Justin Hayward. I remember naming my roommate's cat Justin after him!

You know, that Blue Jays CD contains some of JH and JL's very best work. That still to this day remains one of my favourite of their records.

Lonnie Donegan was quite the creep, signing a very young 17 year old Justin Hayward to a terrible contract, about which Justin states, he really should have known better... and refers to him in many conversation s as one of those terrible producers. The contract took ownership to the rights to Hayward's songs for the next eight years, and as a result, neither Hayward or his family will ever own the rights to most of the early hits he wrote, such as Nights in White Satin, Question and scores of o

Classic Blue was Hayward and Mike Batt reworking classic rock songs NOT his own but by other artists, such as MacArthur's Park, Vincent and Stairway to Heaven, backed by an orchestra. Unlike more serious contemporary artists, Hayward and the Moody Blues are still playing a heavy schedule to packed houses around the world, while most others are nowhere to be found! Love those critics! Go to a Moody Blues a d this year's reviews, and THEN write about them. Geez.
