Justin Hayward

David Justin Hayward (born 14 October 1946 in, Swindon, Wiltshire, England) is an English musician, best known as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and composer in the rock band The Moody Blues.

Hayward was born in Dean Street, Swindon, Wiltshire, England. He attended The Commonweal School, in Swindon, Wiltshire.

Career

When Hayward was 15 he was able to afford a Gibson guitar and a Vox amplifier through performing with local Swindon groups in clubs and dance halls playing mostly Buddy Holly songs. One of Hayward's early groups was All Things Bright, which opened for The Hollies and Brian Poole and the Tremeloes. In 1965 he answered an advertisement in The Melody Maker and auditioned as guitarist for Marty Wilde and he went on to work with Wilde and his wife in The Wilde Three. At age 17, he signed a publishing contract as a songwriter with the skiffle artist and record producer Lonnie Donegan, a move Hayward later regretted as it meant the rights to all his songs written before 1974 would always be owned by Donegan's Tyler Music. Justin was recently involved in the remastering of The Moody Blues back catalogue for Universal Music.

The Moody Blues

In 1966, after answering another ad in The Melody Maker, this time placed by Eric Burdon of The Animals, Hayward was contacted by Mike Pinder of The Moody Blues after Burdon had passed Hayward's letter and demo discs to Pinder. Within a few days Hayward had replaced departing Moody Blues vocalist and guitarist Denny Laine. Bassist John Lodge replaced Clint Warwick at the same time.

Hayward's and Lodge's integration into the Moody Blues along with Pinder's use of the Mellotron sparked greater commercial success and recognition for the band, transforming them into one of the biggest-selling acts. Hayward says of Pinder: "Mike and the Mellotron made my songs work."

The 1967 album Days of Future Passed, one of the first and most influential symphonic rock albums, spawned the Hayward-penned singles "Tuesday Afternoon" and "Nights in White Satin". The latter record went on to sell over two million copies and has been recorded by many other recording artists.

Hayward wrote the band's UK #2 hit, "Question" as well as "Voices in the Sky", "Driftwood", "The Voice", "Blue World" "Your Wildest Dreams", "I Know You're Out There Somewhere", "English Sunset" and "December Snow", writing in all 20 of the group's 27 post-1967 singles.

Their album sales from 1978 to the present are more than 60 million. This is the regularly quoted total of their album sales, since the total sales of their albums before 1978 is disputed due to lack of official record company data.

1974 onwards

In 1974, the Moody Blues decided to take what ended up being a four-year break from performing and recording. Hayward, however, continued working with Lodge and producer Tony Clarke, using musicians from the Moody Blues' label, Threshold, and sounding very much like the mother group. Together, they had a hit in 1975 with "Blue Guitar" (a Hayward recording with the band 10cc), and released an album titled Blue Jays. Hayward wrote four prominent songs with Moodies flautist Ray Thomas.

In 1977 Justin recorded his first solo album "Songwriter" and enjoyed international solo success in 1978 when he appeared on the Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds concept album, which yielded his hits "Forever Autumn" and "The Eve of the War". Wayne later contributed to Hayward's 1980 album Night Flight.

During the 1980s, Hayward composed and performed for film and television, including the theme song "It Won't Be Easy" for the 1987 BBC2 science fiction series Star Cops, "Something Evil, Something Dangerous" for the film Howling IV: The Original Nightmare, "Eternal Woman" for She and music for The Shoe People.

In 1989, with producer-arranger Mike Batt, Hayward released Classic Blue, an album of pop standards written by other composers, set to orchestration arranged by Batt. Classic Blue included a cover version of Led Zeppelin's hit "Stairway to Heaven." Hayward's most recent solo album, The View from the Hill, was released in 1996, and a live recording, Live in San Juan Capistrano, followed in 1998.

Hayward contributed vocals to a song on Rick Wakeman's 1999 album Return to the Centre of the Earth.

In 2003 he sang along with other rock singers on another orchestral album, consisting of Moody Blues songs with the Frankfurt Rock Orchestra, titled Justin Hayward and Friends Perform the Hits of the Moody Blues (alternatively called Sing The Moody Blues Classic Hits). Hayward, however, was later involved in a legal dispute, now resolved, as he was not being paid for his participation on the album.

In April 2006, Hayward took part in the stage tour of Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, reprising his role in Autumn 2007 in Australia and in the UK in December 2007. He did so again in the UK in June 2009, and appeared on the tour in November and December 2010.

The Moody Blues, with Hayward, Edge and Lodge, continue to tour extensively and in a recent BBC World Service interview, Hayward and Lodge made it clear they have no plans to stop working, regarding it as "a privilege" to still be working in the music industry. In an interview, in 2005, Edge said if he remained in good health, he could go on for 10 more years.

Instruments

For the most part, Hayward has used a red Gibson ES-335 ("main axe"), though he also uses other guitars in both performing and recording, including a 1955 Martin D-28 "Dreadnought", a James Olson six-string acoustic, a Black Guild acoustic, (mock) Squier Stratocaster, Fender Telecaster, a blonde Guild open-tuned (Open C Major - CCGGCCGGCCEE) 12-string acoustic and a 12-string Gibson acoustic (for "Question"), and in 1967 a black Les Paul. Between 1965 and 1968 he was without his Gibson 335 and relied on other instruments, most notably a 1964 Fender Telecaster and a hand-built 12-string guitar he had renovated for Donegan (he eventually bought this guitar from Donegan's widow). However, in an interview that is included on the "Lovely to See You Concert" DVD (2005), Hayward says the 1963 Gibson 335 has been with him since 1967. Recently he has played a Collings D3 on stage and on recordings . Among other instruments, Hayward also played the mandolin on A Question of Balance and the sitar on "In Search Of The Lo
st Chord".

Personal life

Hayward married former model Ann Marie Guirron on December 19, 1969, they've been together ever since. Their daughter Doremi was born on December 3, 1972.

Awards


Hayward was awarded the first of numerous ASCAP awards for songwriting in 1974. In 1985, the Moody Blues picked up the Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, and in 1988 Hayward received the Novello, among other honours, for Composer of the Year (for "I Know You're Out There Somewhere"). In 2000, he was one of a handful of British artists to receive the "Golden Note" award for lifetime achievement by the American Society of Songwriters, Composers and Publishers. In 2004, Hayward was awarded the "Gold Badge" for lifetime achievement by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors.
