John's next solo effort, 1984's No Brakes, did exactly what the title inferred, barreling at runaway train speed to international acclaim and U. platinum success thanks to the smash hit, "Missing You," which did not stop until it reached Number 1 on the Billboard's Hot 100 Singles, Album Rock Tracks and Adult Contemporary charts.The following up single, "Tears" was a top 10 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts.
The ride began when Waite was tapped as bassist and lead vocalist for the Babys who rocketed to Top 20 chart positions with a pair of infections hits, "Isn't it Time" from the band's sophomore LP, Broken Heart in 1977 and the monster ballad, "Every Time I Think of You" off 1978's Head First.But it was the album's rhythmically aggressive and seductive title track where fans got their first glimpse of the authentic John Waite, a no-holds-barred rock n' roll performer devoted heart and soul to live performance and making sure every fan in the audience left the concert hall just as elated and exhausted as the band they'd paid to see.From the ashes of the Baby's, however, rose an abundant and prodigious solo career, ignited by the well-received release, Ignition, that featured the single, "Change," which rode the AOR charts for weeks in 1982, the year a new cable channel that would alter the course of popular media culture called MTV launched.At the forefront of its early play list was the video for the Holly Knight-penned track that in 1985, was included on the platinum-selling Vision Quest soundtrack.Iowa dating can be discouraging at times, and at the heart of traditional Internet dating, there’s a real challenge for Iowa singles looking for love that lasts.

Since returning to the recording studio and concert trek as a solo artist in 1995, John has produced a string of solid, existentially eccentric, courageously eclectic and blisteringly electric rock n' roll records, including 1995's Temple Bar, 1997's When You Were Mine, 2001's Figure in a Landscape, 2004's The Hard Way, 2006's Downtown: Journey of a Heart and 2010's In Real Time - an extraordinary live recording that featured burning in-concert realizations of the Baby's "Change", "Back on My Feet Again" and "Head First", not to mention Bad English's "Best of What I've Got" as well as a mind-blowing cover of Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll." It was this lifelong passion for original Country that inspired John's sensational 2006 duet with bluegrass legend, Allison Krauss, where the two combined honeysweet vocal forces to remake his international hit, "Missing You." On February 5, 2007, they performed the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.John teamed up with Matchbox 20 lead guitarist and songwriter, Kyle Cook in 2011 and their creative chemistry birthed the exhilarating Rough & Tumble, a long form exercise in raucous riffs and bloody truths highlighted by "Further the Sky," "Shadows of Love" and the Classic Radio chart topping title track, a remarkable feat for any musician to reach number one airplay after three and a half decades in the music business trenches.Continuing to evolve as both a songwriter and formidable stage presence, Mask of Smiles was released in 1985, possessing a pair of muscular hit melodies, "Every Step of the Way," and "If Anybody Had a Heart," which appeared on the soundtrack to the 1986 motion picture, About Last Night starring Demi Moore.
