When music is your whole life, and suddenly life gets interrupted….

In lost and rare archival music videos, photos, and very personal and candid lock-down interviews, the film finds 80s rock icon John Waite reflecting back on his 5-decade career. The film features 27 songs from across John’s career, from pioneer rock-video band The Babys in the 1970s, to his breakthrough as a solo artist in the early days of MTV, to touring with an actual Beatle, John recounts his struggles inside the commercialized world of the music business and his independent pursuits as a self-powered solo, live music artist.

And 93.3 WMMR’s Jacky Bam Bam is part of that journey. “We love Jacky, he’s like the 5th Beatle,” John told The Preston & Steve Show. The nighttime DJ befriended the musician somewhere along the way, “he’s been in integral part of our East Coast growth.”

Their friendship continues to this day. During the conversation with the MMR morning show, John pointed out what it is about Jacky’s energy that draws people too him, “he’s always there, he’s like a bright light.”

Enjoy John Waite’s conversation with The Preston & Steve show about the new documentary, “The Hard Way.”
