When the Moody Blues took a break from touring in 1975, Justin worked on the Blue Jays album, followed by the hit single ‘Blue Guitar’.

"I have spent most of my life, so far, on the road", says Justin. "Playing live and creating a small piece of magic in a room is like a drug to me, one that I never want to give up". His is a talent that has helped soundtrack more than a generation and created a legacy that remains undimmed.
