John Waite ain't ever gonna 'Change' ... and we like it that way
Remember last summer when John Waite made headlines for trashing Journey and other ‘80s bands that keep reuniting? Let’s instead choose to remember the John Waite who had a sense of humor in the video for Change. The video for Change starts off as your typical starlett trying to make it in Hollywood narrative, but ends with a few light-hearted moments and plot twist.
After his departure from The Babies, Change was Waite’s first single off his 1982 Ignition album and only charted on the Mainstream Rock Charts. In 1985, Change was included in the movie Vision Quest and tried to piggyback on the success of the No. 1 smash Missing You, but only made it to No. 59 on the charts.
Waite makes his triumphant return to Clearwater on May 31 for downtown's Blast Friday free concert series.
