As a solo artist and as the lead singer of the Babys and Bad English, John Waite was a fixture of album-oriented rock radio stations during the ’70s and ’80s. John Waite had a talent for power ballads and driving arena rock, occasionally touching on new wave-styled power pop as well.
John Waite formed the Babys in London, England in 1976. Initially conceived as a teen pop band, the Babys earned a record contract based on the strength of a video demo they constructed with producer Mike Mansfield. Chrysalis pushed the band heavily, resulting in “Isn’t It Time” becoming a hit in the U.S. and U.K. in 1977.
After the group disbanded in 1978 Waite began his solo career the following year, releasing
John Waite formed the supergroup Bad English with former Babys Jonathan Cain and Ricky Phillips (bass), ex–Journey guitarist Neal Schon, and drummer Deen Castronovo. The group’s debut album, released in 1989 on Epic Records, became a platinum success after the power ballad “When I See You Smile” became a number one hit. “Price of Love” was a Top Ten hit also.
Waite resumed his solo career in 1995, releasing Temple Bar on Imago. John Waite continues to tour his catalogue of music from his stellar 40 year career as one of the most recognisable voices of rock music!
