Über John Waite
John Waite's tenures in the Babys and Bad English were sufficient to emblazon his name in the annals of rock history; however, the great majority of listeners will forever equate Waite's name with his 1984 solo release No Brakes. That definitive document contained the soft rock staples "Missing You" and "Tears," and earned him the Protean status of a performer whose songs you could find on radio stations ranging from Hard and Classic Rock to easy listening. Waite had his finger in so many musical pies, it seemed you couldn't turn on a radio during the '80s without hearing his soaring soprano. Waite continues to put out records today, and in 2004 released The Hard Way, a return to his '80s pop rock form.
