The Babys are a rock group best known for their songs “Isn’t It Time” and “Every Time I Think of You“. Both songs 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 left the band 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 breakup in 1981, The Babys line-up consisted of vocalist Waite, drummer Brock, bassist Phillips, guitarist Stocker, and keyboardist Cain.
After the breakup, John Waite went on to produce a major solo hit, “Missing You“, and continues to be a solo artist today. Jonathan Cain left to join Journey. John Waite, Jonathan Cain and Ricky Phillips joined Bad English in the late 1980s. Ricky Phillips currently plays for Styx. Wally Stocker and Tony Brock (together and separately) worked with Rod Stewart and other mainstream artists including Elton John, Air Supply, Keith Urban and Humble Pie.
In late 2012, auditions were held to find suitable replacements for the departed members. Joining original Babys Tony Brock and Wally Stocker, will be John Bisaha (Lead Vocals/Bass)and Joey Sykes (Guitars). The new lineup has been rehearsing the well-known Babys tunes from the past – while pushing forward with new music to be brought to The Babys FANS – who have been sorely neglected low these many years!
Joining The Babys onstage are keyboardist Francesco Saglietti, and “The Babettes’ – Holly and Elisa.
