Fun facts about Justin Hayward: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) He is an English musician, best known as singer, songwriter and guitarist in the rock band The Moody Blues. Hayward was born in Dean Street, Swindon, Wiltshire, England, and educated at Shrivenham School, Berkshire, and The Commonweal School in Swindon.

2) In 1966, after answering another ad in 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 on 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 temporary deputy Rod Clarke who had stood in for departed Bassist Clint Warwick at the same time.

3) After beginning by singing the old blues-inspired repertoire of The Moodies' 1964-1965 era, Hayward's initial artistic contribution to The Moody Blues was his song 'Fly Me High', which was a Decca single early in 1967. It failed to chart but gave the revised band a new direction forward from the 'R & B' sound they had been largely producing up to that point.

Justin is playing The Canyon Club in Agoura Hills tonight, showtime is at 9:00pm.

The Moody Blues will also start touring this summer...from August 1st to September 5th.

‘Spirits Of The Western Sky’ is out now.
