Justin was handed his first guitar when he was nine years old, and at the age of 15, Hayward purchased his first Gibson guitar, which he earned by performing with local bands in various bars. Marty Wilde was looking for a guitarist in 1965, and Hayward answered to the ad and was hired. He signed a songwriter contract with Lonnie Donegan when he was 17, but subsequently acknowledged that he regretted the decision. After hearing Hayward’s demo, Mike Pinder called him in 1966. Hayward replaced Denny Laine’a in The Moody Blues a few days later, around the same time as bassist John Lodge replaced Clint Warwick. The Moody Blues became one of the most popular bands in the UK after the addition of new members; in 1967, they released a series of successful singles including “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Voices in the Sky,” “Nights in White Satin,” and others, contributing to the highly successful album “Days of Future Past.” He is the author of 20 of The Moody Blues’ 27 hits released since then.
The members of the band decided to split up in 1972. Hayward, John Lodge, and producer Tony Clarke continued to collaborate, producing music that was comparable to that of The Moody Blues. They collaborated on the album “Blue Jays” (1975), and worked together again in the 1980s and 1990s. Hayward released his first solo album, “Songwriter,” in 1978, followed by “Night Flight” in 1980. Hayward sang and composed for television in the 1980s, including the song “It Will Not Be Easy” for the TV show “Star Cops,” “Something Evil, Something Dangerous” for the film “Howling IV: The Original Nightmare,” and others. He published “Moving Mountains” in 1985 and “Classic Blue” in 1989, both of which featured his own renditions of songs created by other songwriters. In 1996, he released “The View From the Hill,” and two years later, he recorded “Live In San Juan Capistrano.” In 2003, he recorded “Justin Hayward and Friends Perform the Hits of the Moody Blues” with other singers and a Frankfurt orchestra. Hayward was initially unpaid for his participation in the recording, which was eventually addressed in court.
Hayward took part in a promotional tour for Jeff Wayne’s CD “Musical Version of The War of the Worlds” in 2006. He released his studio album “Spirits of the Western Sky” in 2013 and his last (so far) live CD “Spirits…Live” in 2014. Finally, in the singer and musician’s personal life, he married model Ann Marie Guirron in 1970, and the couple has a daughter. Hayward lives in two places: one in France and the other in Cornwall.
