The Babys to get Back On Their Feet Again

by Mark Cartwright

Even though John Waite and Jonathan Cain declined to rejoin, former members of The Babys are recording a new album, and the lineup sounds like it could really be good. Joining original members Wally Stocker (guitar) and Tony Brock (drums), will be Joey Sykes, who played with Merideth Brooks, and singer Jon Bisaha. Bisaha is an acomplished singer with great vocal range. So you might miss Cain and Waite, and you might miss original bass player, Ricky Phillips, (now with Styx), but there is no deying that the new lineup has plenty of talent. This could be one of the surprise albums of the coming year.
