Following the success of his previous three albums; "MOONLIGHT SHADOWS", "THE MOVIES" and "THE BEST OF", Tony Hayes sadly ceased his "Shadows" based instrumental set tours and joined UK rock giants Guns'n'Oatcakes in a complete change of musical direction. And in 2001 after having his music included in the "National Geographic Channel" stopped playing and recording altogether.
As he explained: "I honestly thought I would never want to play again, in fact I had not picked a guitar up for almost 3 years when I was asked to play at my sisters wedding. I quickly realised three things; I really missed doing it, I was VERY out of practice and a minor point, I had sold 90% of my equipment and gear!"
Tony Hayes still remains one of the UK's best instrumental guitarists.
Now back in the studio and preparing for touring in 2006 with his new album "MIDNIGHT" (TRACK LIST as follows:)
1. PHANTOM OF THE OPERA 2. WONDERFUL LAND 3. FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE 4. ONE MOMENT IN TIME 5. THEME FOR YOUNG LOVERS 6. SPRING IS NEARLY HERE 7. BRYNMOR 8. NADJA 9. CAVATINA 10. JANINE 11. ANGELS 12. MIDNIGHT 13. DON'T CRY FOR ME ARGENTINA 14. MY HEART WILL GO ON (theme from Titanic)
