To supergroup των Bad English

ROCK STORIES

To 1988 o John Waite, ο Jonathan Cain και ο Ricky Phillips από το συγκρότημα των Babys αποφάσισαν μαζί με τον Neal Schon των Journey και τον Deen Castronov να φτιάξουν το supergroup των Bad English. Το συγκρότημα δεν είχε μεγάλη χρονική διάρκεια και ηχογράφησε δύο άλμπουμ. Το 1989 το ομώνυμο ΄΄Bad English΄΄ και το 1991 το ΄΄Backlash΄΄. Μεγαλύτερη επιτυχία τους η υπέροχη μπαλάντα “When I See You Smile”.
