An impressive live performer, John Waite is touring in support of his lastest solo release Rough and Tumble. In collaboration with Matchbox 20 lead guitarist/songwriter Kyle Cook, the eclectic collection of brand new material is Waite's first solo release since 2007's Downtown...Journey of Hart.

Inspired by British blues-bands like Free, Small Faces and Humble Pie, Waite got his start as the lead singer of The Baby's who within short time had a Top 40 hits with Isn't It Time? and Every Time I Think of You. After five albums with The Baby's, John Waite moved to New York to go solo during the early 1980's. His first solo album, Ignition, boasted the MTV/rock radio staple Change which was soon followed with a number one and what is undeniably one of the all-time greatest pop/rock ballads, Missing You. The song topped the international charts and today remains a radio staple around the globe. Waite returned to the top of the charts during a two-album tenure as front man for the pop/rock super group Bad English whose number one single When I see You Smile, sparked sold out concert tours and a succession of Billboard Hot 100 Hits.
