Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 6/26/14 Supergroup Bad English Forms
(The Six O'Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
It was 25 years ago that supergroup Bad English hit the scene, featuring former Babys front man John Waite, former Babys/Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain, and former Santana/Journey guitarist Neal Schon. Bassist, and current brand rights holder, Ricky Phillips also was a part of The Babys, while drummer Dean Castronovo was preparing for his career launch. He would later join a re-formed Journey and work with Ozzy Osbourne on his 1995 LP Ozzmosis. This band epitomized the state of Mainstream Rock in the late '80's, as the debut LP was chock full of power ballads like "When I See You Smile", "Price Of Love", and "Possession". Fans and critics alike wondered how such an assembly of rockers could produce such a sissified sound...(ahem...Jonathan Cain...ahem)
Don't worry, I am sparing you the sappy, poppy sounds of Bad English tonight. Rather, we'll remember the good ol' rockin' days of Cain, Waite, and Schon. Tune in for The Babys', with Cain and Waite doing "Midnight Rendezvous"; post-Babys solo stuff from John Waite with "Change", and Cain and Schon from their Journey days with "Stone In Love". It's tonight's Six O'Clock Triple Shot on 94.9 WMMQ!
