The Babys reunite for first album in 30 years

Seventies rockers The Babys have reunited to record their first album in 30 years. The Isn’t It Time and Midnight Rendezvous hitmakers have reformed with original lead guitarist Wally Stocker and drummer Tony Brock, and their comeback album, I’ll Have Some of That, will be released on 24 June (14), while a new single, titled I See You There, is already available on iTunes.
Stocker says, “The whole premise is to keep The Babys alive and have a good time doing it.”
He and Brock have been joined by new recruits John Bisaha and veteran rhythm guitarist Joey Sykes in the line-up, while keyboardist Francesco Saglietti will hit the road with the new line-up.
Brock adds, “John Bisaha is an incredible singer. When we held auditions, we had singers lined up around the block to join the band and John was head and shoulders above the rest.”
Formed in London in 1974, The Babys were signed to Chrysalis Records and released five albums between 1977 and 1980. They toured with the likes of Journey, Alice Cooper and Cheap Trick and built up a loyal following.
They disbanded in December, 1980.
Former members John Waite, Jonathan Cain and Ricky Phillips have all given their blessing to the newest incarnation of the band.
Missing You singer Waite has found solo success, Cain is a current member of Journey and Phillips is a longtime bass player for Styx.
