John Waite disses former bandmates in 'super-white' Journey



bad-english-73663.jpgJohn Waite's always been a sort of "go his own way" artist over the years, but in a new interview with Metal Sludge, the solo art/former Bad English/former Babys frontman attacks the music of ... Journey?!?

Waite told the website that he regrets his time fronting Bad English (with included Journey's Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain and Deen Castronovo), saying of their music: "I think it’s garbage. I mean, I hate to say it, but I listen to Journey and think, 'Jesus Christ, that is just wrong.' That’s why there will never be a Bad English reunion. It’s for super white people listening to super white music. F--- that. I’d rather shoot myself."

And that's it. Wow. A hit-and-run case.

No word from his friends in Journey just yet but I can't imagine they'll stay mum too long.
