Justin Hayward was born on 14 October 1946, in Swindon, Wiltshire, England. As frontman, often lead singer, and guitarist with the Moody Blues, Hayward wrote a large number of the group's hits, including "Nights In White Satin", a major hit of the time, now recognized as a highly influential piece. He also began a solo career while the Moodies were on occasional haiatus. When the group first split, Hayward and Moody bassist John Lodge formed the Blue Jays , and released a self-titled album . In 1975, this album scored the duo a UK Top 10 hit in "Blue Guitar" . Hayward's biggest solo commercial success came in the form of a song titled "Forever Autumn", which reached the UK Top 5 . The song came from a musical version of The War of the Worlds organized by Jeff Wayne in 1978.
