John waite dating
I’ve got cupboards full of CDs that I don’t know what to do with them.
LT80s: Outside of music, what are your other interests? I was just saying to somebody the other day that I picked up a volume of Walt Whitman last week, and he just blew my head off of my shoulders.
He was lead vocalist for The Babys and Bad English. 1 hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 and a top ten hit on the UK Singles Chart.
Waite was born in Lancaster, and was educated at Lancaster Art College (The Storey Institute).
By the time we were doing Bad English, it was a very visual band, and I think I was really trying to probably push people’s buttons. The work I’ve done I’m proud of, it’s part of the set, and it’s all kind of musical, but I don’t want to be in Las Vegas somewhere just singing something that I wrote in another lifetime. It was like one of those gigs where you think, how good can your life get? I thought I’d try it this one time and see if it worked, just to have it on i Tunes.
There’s still an awful lot to write about, and the voice is doing pretty good. You can get it if you send off for it, but it’s just there’s so few CD stores now. He said that they were closing the music department in Barnes & Noble, and in my hometown they just shut HMV.
On Friday morning (February 9, 2018) the English Sun-Times reported John Waite and girlfriend, to be shopping for engagement rings.
We had a lot of hits, so it wasn’t my first shot at being in the Top 20, but it was certainly my first number one, and I don’t think anybody can prepare you for that. I just stepped backwards, out of the limelight for a little bit, and made a record I wanted to make. My favorite version, I guess, is me and Alison Krauss. Mike Shipley, who passed away last week, unfortunately, mixed that.Waite first came to attention as the lead singer and bassist of The Babys, a British rock band 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), Waite subsequently launched his solo career with his 1982 debut album Ignition, which produced the hit single "Change".LT80s: Have you had a chance to read the new book by the original MTV VJs? “Every time I think of you, I always catch my breath./And I’m still standing here, and you’re miles away, and I’m wondering why you left/ And there’s a storm that’s raging through my frozen heart tonight. LT80s: I was recently watching the video for another number one hit of yours from the late ‘80s, When I See You Smile, with Bad English. The night before we did the Missing You video, I had really long hair, and I went out and shaved it all off and bought a black suit. As somebody once said to me, “Give them something to look at,” and I thought, We went to number one, but I think the Journey fans wanted something a bit more Journey, and I think the John Waite fans wanted a bit more of the black suit. LT80s: When you think back on the ‘80s, what are some of your favorite memories? I was living in New York before , and I hadn’t got a penny. LT80s: Our readers wanted to know if there was any chance of either a Bad English or a Babys reunion? We [Bad English] ran out of ideas during our second record, and we just couldn’t take it. They’ve got a new lineup, and they’re going out and playing. What I’m trying to say is there’s no keyboards, or synthesizers, or any of the stuff that gets in the way of music. LT80s: Listeners can hear in the new album the fact that you enjoy doing it. We played Dayton about three weeks ago, we headlined. This time around, I didn’t want to go through a record label. There’s a PR person; that’s how me and you have got to talk to each other. But it meant that much to that many people, and I made it up on the spot. LT80s: For all of the junior high girls in 1984, thank you. It  was number one, and all the people in New York City that I used to know in the street, little old ladies walking their dogs, or the guy that used to run the coffee shop, the spaghetti shop, and the Indian restaurant; they were all super proud of me. I’ve always adored New York City, and it felt like that was the most exciting thing, really, just having succeeded from coming from nothing, because it was black and white. I think there’s a time and a place for bands to exist, and then it’s done. In something like “If You Ever Get Lonely,” it is kind of delicate, but it’s got a big chorus. Hopefully, another live record around November, and then back in the studio to see what we got for a studio record. I generally license my records out to big companies like Universal, and then after a certain time they come back to me.
