The Babys were a British rock group best known for their songs “Isn’t It Time” and “Every Time I Think of You“. Both songs were composed by Jack Conrad and Ray Kennedy, and reached #13 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in the late 1970s. The 1976–1978 Babys line-up consisted of keyboardist/guitarist Michael Corby, vocalist/bassist John Waite, drummer Tony Brock and guitarist Wally Stocker.
After Corby was unexpectedly sacked by Chrysalis in August 1978, a replacement was sought and the company brought in two musicians: Jonathan Cain as keyboardist and Ricky Phillips to take over as bassist. From 1979 until the final breakup in 1981, The Babys line-up consisted of vocalist Waite, drummer Brock, bassist Phillips, guitarist Stocker, and keyboardist Cain.
John Waite went on to produce a major solo hit, “Missing You“, in 1984. Stocker and Brock worked with Rod Stewart and other mainstream artists including Elton John and Air Supply. Cain left to join Journey. Waite, Cain and Phillips joined Bad English in the late 1980s. Phillips currently plays for Styx.
The Babys are currently getting the band back together again in order to tour and create new music in 2013. Founding members Tony Brock (Drums) and Wally Stocker (Lead Guitar), have welcomed JP Cervoni (Rhythm Guitar) and John Bisaha (Lead Vocals/Bass) into the group. Stay tuned for more info regarding tour dates and new music!
