Bad English • Rock • Hair Metal
John Waite, some boys from Journey, and a few other guys. What could go wrong? Nothing.
Gotta be doing something right if you can get your music into a Stallone and Kurt Russell flick (Tango & Cash). Bad English was another super group where a bunch of guys in other awesome bands.
- Dean Castronovo (Drums)
- John Waite (Lead Vocals)
- Jonathan Cain (Piano, Keys, Guitar)
- Neil Schon (Lead Guitar)

When Diane Warren calls, you say yes. This also applies to Richard Marx.
When I See You Smile might just be the lightest song in the overall hair metal catalog. Fluttery piano intro. Acoustic guitar comes in next. John Waite's anything-but-heavy-metal vocals. I mean, the guy wrote Missing You. Also, anyone ever notice that John Waite looks like a cross between David Duchovny and Joe (Anthony Battaglia) from Empire Records?
Waite's song for Vision Quest, Change, is actually a harder tune, despite being slightly more pop, if you can believe it.
