John Waite has always captured the moment through his songs. For more than three decades, he has enjoyed an illustrious musical career that began in 1975 when he first arrived in London, restless and wild, a fresh-faced art student from England's north. Waite firmly believes that returning to the road was the key to refocusing his entire musical career. "Going back in a grass roots situation to pull off a real strong set in front of a thousand people without a current record helped me re-learn my craft - basically to forget everything else but the music. It's right back to being 17. And that's when you remember why you came. I got a refresher course in why I'm John Waite."
