Justin Hayward is best known as the singer, composer and lead guitarist for The Moody Blues. The Swindon, England native's professional career began in 1964 when he joined Marty Wilde and his wife, Joyce, in the Wilde Three. Hayward joined the Moody Blues in late 1966, replacing departing vocalist, Denny Laine. Bassist John Lodge replaced Clint Warwick at the same time. The integration of Hayward and Lodge into the Moody Blues sparked commercial success and recognition for the band, transforming them from a cover band into one of the biggest selling acts of all-time. The 1967 album Days of Future Passed was one of the most influential albums of its genre and spawned the Hayward-penned singles "Tuesday Afternoon" and "Nights in White Satin" that went on to sell over 2 million copies worldwide.
