John Waite is one of my top 5 all time recording artists. Most people only know a couple of his sappy love songs. He has a multitude of great rock songs and one of the best and most distinct rock voices I've heard. His career has been totally underappreciated other than the song referenced here (Missing You). I saw him in Austin last year in an acoustic set and he is still awesome. As the lead singer for The Baby's, Bad English, and a long solo career, he has multiple outstanding songs and also does a great job covering some all time classics. His cover of Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love really displays his vocal range. Sadly, there is not a high quality recording of it available, only some low quality you tube videos. He is heavily influenced by Bob Dylan and has covered multiple Dylan songs throughout his career.
So, thanks for bringing him up.
