Bio:

John Charles Waite (born 4 July 1952 is an English musician. He was lead vocalist for The Babys and Bad English. As a solo artist, he scored several international hits, including 1984's "Missing You", a No. 1 hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 and a top ten hit on the UK Singles Chart.Waite was born in Lancaster, England and was educated at Lancaster's Storey Art College He first came to attention as the lead singer and bassist of The Babys, a British group which had moderate chart success, including two pop hits that both coincidentally peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, "Isn't It Time" (1977) and "Everytime I Think Of You" (1979),and a solid following for their concert tours. Over the course of five years, the band produced five albums ending with the final album On the Edge in October 1980, after which the group broke up.Waite subsequently launched his solo career with his 1982 debut album Ignition, which produced the hit single "Change". The Chrysalis 45 failed to chart on Billboard's Hot 100 during its initial release (June 1982) but was a top track on AOR radio stations, as well as a very popular music video on MTV as the 'new' cable channel celebrated its first full year of operation. The pulsating track was written by Holly Knight (The song was originally recorded in 1981 by Knight's band Spider) and in 1985 was included on the Platinum selling Vision Quest soundtrack. (The single was reissued and this time it reached the Top 50 on the Hot 100.) "Going To The Top" was released as the original follow-up single to "Change".His next album, No Brakes, resulted in international attention - and was a Top 10 Billboard album in the US - due to the smash hit "Missing You" which went to No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.It knocked Tina Turner's "What's Love Got To Do With It?" out of No. 1. For that very reason, Turner later recorded and released Waite's smash song herself. (Turner's single peaked at No. 84 on Billboard's Hot 100 in 1996.) "Missing You" also hit No. 1 on Billboard's Album Rock Tracks as well as the Top 10 of Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. No Brakes sold over a million and a half US copies yet has never been certified above the RIAA Gold standard (a record company must apply to the RIAA for such certification). Two more singles from No Brakes followed, including "Tears" which was a Top 10 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts.The next album Mask of Smiles followed in 1985 featuring the hit single "Every Step of the Way". Another single, "If Anybody Had a Heart", was released from the soundtrack of the 1986 film About Last Night..., starring Demi Moore. In 1987, Rover's Return was released with the single "These Times Are Hard For Lovers". Waite would have another soundtrack appearance in 1990 from Days of Thunder with "Deal for Life", written by Martin Page and Bernie Taupin.In 1988, Waite joined former Babys bandmates Jonathan Cain and Ricky Phillips along with Neal Schon from Journey and drummer Deen Castronovo, to form the supergroup Bad English. In 1989, the Bad English ballad "When I See You Smile" (penned by Diane Warren) went to No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 and earned a Gold-certified single. Its parent album reached Billboard's Top Five and sold nearly two million copies in the United States alone. Bad English released two albums before tensions amongst the members led to the band's dissolution by 1992.Waite returned to solo work and since 1995 has produced five solo albums including his latest album Rough And Tumble. He still tours, including in 2003 with Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, and as an opening act for Journey in 2005.In 2006, "Missing You" was released as a duet with Alison Krauss and reached the Top 40 on the Country Charts in the United States. Waite appeared with Krauss on The Tonight Show on 5 February 2007 to perform "Missing You."In 2008 he recorded as a guest vocal the track "In God's Shadow" from the Keith Reid Project's The Common Thread.Waite appears as himself and performs two songs in the 2010 feature film, New Day, from L'Oiseau Blanc Films.In 2011 the title track from his tenth solo album " Rough and Tumble " went number one on Classic Rock radio.2013 saw "Missing You" featured heavily in the U.S. No. 1 movie Warm Bodies as well as "Change" being part of the soundtrack of the U.S. movie Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

Album:

One of the most outstanding vocalists in AOR / Melodic Rock history is without a doubt JOHN WAITE, as part of The Babys, supergroup Bad English or a solo artist. His first solo album “Ignition” is perhaps his less listened but one of his best, upbeat, hard rocking albums, greatly ‘Remastered & Reloaded‘ by Rock Candy Records.Born In Lancashire, England, Waite first achieved popularity and success fronting melodic rockers The Babys notching up two top 20 US hit singles before breaking up the group to launch a solo career… a path that would see him score a US #1 single in 1984 with the plaintiff and hugely powerful ‘Missing You’.“Ignition”, John’s debut solo album produced by Neil Geraldo – Pat Benatar’s guitarist, producer, mastermind, husband and who knows what else – was recorded in New York City in late 1981 and is widely acknowledged as Waite’s greatest (certainly hardest hitting) album.Including 10 punchy tracks driven by hard edged (even if extremely processed) guitars handled by the great session monster Tim Pierce, tight rhythm section and commercial mainstream rock ’80s style, this recording still sounds fresh and organic today showcasing Waite’s vocal style un its purest form.“Ignition” gets the full Rock Candy re-issue treatment with a remastering clarity that will resolutely and undeniably confirm Waite’s position as a Rock vocalist extraordinaire.Includes new interview, 4,000 word essay from Stephen Allen, a track by track run down by John Waite plus previously unseen photographs spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.
