Live: All Access is the new live album from John Waite. The album was released on iTunes June 11th and is a sparkling collection of live recordings of songs from the ‘Rough and Tumble’ album, from the solo albums ‘Ignition’ and ‘No Brakes’ and from The Babys era. Waite’s trademark vocals are crystal clear and every bit as powerful as the original studio recordings. The No Brakes band consists of Keri Kelli on guitars, Tim Hogan on bass, and Rhondo on drums.
“It was a great time” states Waite. “Keri had been working his way into the songs. The energy was worth recording. I took a shot at capturing the energy. We were having a blast and it shows in the performance. I think it was a golden time. It cost a small fortune to record and some of the shows were just so good it was worth going after. The band has come a long way and I would like to continue to put something out every 8 months. It’s a great record….. Raw, no overdubs or bullshit. It’s the truth!!!”
