Lancaster lad John Waite had a massive 80’s hit with the soft rock ballad “Missing You” this sees him rock out a little bit more, with a release from his 1987 album “Rover’s Return.”
Big riffage and plenty of backing vocalists on here; as well as Jellybean Benitez mix, who mercifully doesn’t turn it into a dance floor friendly rocker! Rusty Garner also provides an extended rock mix for extra head banging and air guitaring! I’m getting the feel of a Bon Jovi! (Desmond Child did have a hand in it)
A further album taster is added as a bonus track, “Wild One” with it big keyboards and singalong chorus.
I wonder if he has been back to Lancaster and popped into the John O`Gaunt for a beer in the last few years?
