Bad Boys Blue biography

Produced by Coconut Records /Intercord

By the end of the 70's, disco had died and 80's techno/New Wave had emerged. Many groups such as Modern Talking, CC Catch, Eurythmics, and Fancy, spawned a whole new genre of music, called at this time 'techno'. In addtion to this unique style of music, Bad Boys Blue was created in 1982 by the producers Tony Hendrik and Karin Hartmann. The group consisted of Andrew Thomas, John McInerney, and Trevor Taylor

Their first single L.O.V.E. In My Car was out in 1984 and it was not very successful. But they really started making it big in Europe with the follow-ups You're A Woman (which peaked #1 in Israel and reached the top 10 in many European countries) and Come Back And Stay. With much of their success, the group still kept on producing more dynamic ballad songs, that increased thier popularity in size of fans and in music.

Likewise, Bad Boys Blue wasn't as popular or accepted well in the US due to the unwillingness of most US music fans to accept techno as a style of music. However, they did manage to gain some acknowledegment with certain songs like, I Totally Miss You and Save your Love (# 89 on the US Billboard).

In 1991, the group performed at the "Children of Chernobyl" benefit concert in Russia, along with Blue System and Den Harrow. The same year, the first video compilation Bad Boys Best was released.

Of course, with great success came many problems, leading to Trevor Taylor leaving the group to persue his own style of music. By this time, Bad Boys Blue was still strong in the charts, but not as popular around the world. As a quick replacement for Trevor Taylor, the group found a temporary singer named Ova Standing. He sang with the group for a while until a new member arose, Trevor Bannister.

But after a few albums, Trevor left the group, and John and Andrew were left as a duo. They released a new album, called To Blue Horizons, and gained much success. Finally Trevor Taylor returned to establish the original trio but his return didn't last long, and soon he left again to produce his Reggae style. Once again Bad Boys Blue remained a duo until 1995.

In 1994, the group entered a new record label : Intercord. They ultimately found the next member of Bad Boys Blue : Mo Russel. The group spent two years at Intercord producing one album, and many singles.

In 1998, the Bad Boys Blue came back under Coconut records ; some of the production team members from Intercord has chipped in their talents to produce the newest installment to the group's albums. Entitled Back, it was released for the same reason as Modern Talking's newest album. The single You're A Woman'98 was released. Eric Singleton himself was even asked to contribute to the raps.

Felix J Gauder remixed some tracks of the album Bang Bang Bang. David Brandes and John O'Flynn produced some singles (From Heaven To Heartache, Come Back And Stay '98), and many tracks of the albums Back and Continued. Lyane Leigh took part as female vocalist to the singles Come Back And Stay and The Power Of The Night.

1999 : Mo left the group at the end of the year. He was replaced by Kevin McCoy (aka Jojo Max), who had already worked with the group since 1998 as a rapper. The group released a new album called Follow The Light in Autumn.

2000 : the new BBB single was called I'll Be Good. It was followed by the next album Tonite in July, which was not very succesful.

2002 : after the end of their contract with Coconut, the group signed a deal with Bros Music, David Brandes records company, in summer. In September they started working on their next album

2003 : Kevin McCoy left the group. John and Andrew decided to go on as a duet again. David Brandes had the idea of having the BBB taking part to Eurovision Song Contest... to represent Estonia ! But the Estonian did not agree.

The Bad Boys Blue released their new single Lover On The Line on the 7th of July. At first it was a song which had been planned for a project called Crescent. Some other tracks of the album had also been initially written for other artists, among them : Thomas Anders, Chris Norman and Fancy.

Lover On The Line went #72 in Germany. Their new album, postponed several times, was called Around The World. Were also released, in Poland only, 2 best of compilations entitled In The Mix and The Stars Of The XX Century - Greatest Hits.

2004 : the BBB did a promo tour across Germany, the USA, Russia, Ukraine and Hungary.

2005 : in January, John made the decision to stop working with Andrew, who left the group. John kept on touring alone with backing singers. A DVD entitled 1985 - 2005 Video Collection was released, followed by many compilations.

2006 : the duet was recreated, with the arrival of Carlos Ferreira. In September was released a special 3 CD box entitled Hit Collection, featuring all BBB's mega hits. A second formation of the BBB is a trio featuring Andrew Thomas, Kevin McCoy and Herb McCoy, who continue touring under the name "The Real Bad Boys Blue". They could be working on a new release. The coexistence of 2 bands reminds of Boney M...

2007 : in February, John became the father of a little baby girl. The Bad Boys Blue have a new studio in Poland, 2 vocalists (Sylvia and Edyta) and a new producer called Johann Perrier (he stood behind the project OMD). In July, the new Bad Boys Blue single Hold Me In The Night can be discovered on their official website and Myspace. In August their new album, which was recoreded all along the year, will be mixed in Paris. On 31st August 2007 Coconut will release the new compilation of Bad Boys Blue simply titled Bad Boys Blue.

2008 : Trevor Oliver Taylor died January 19th, 2008 from a heart attack.

The new single Still In Love was released in April as digital release, and in May as physical single. Their new album Heart & Soul was available on June 13th in Germany, Austria & Switzerland, and it will be out in Poland on June 30th. The video for the single Still In Love was shot in July in Poland. The next single could be called my Dreams Come True.

2009 : A new Bad Boys Blue album, a double CD entitled 25 was planned to be released in September/October 2009 for the group's 25th anniversary. It included 25 new versions of the greatest hits and songs. Another new studio album containing totally new tracks was announced for Spring 2010.

Andrew Thomas died on 21st July 2009 from a pancreatic cancer.

2010 : their single Come Back And Stay Re-Recorded 2010 was released in Germany on 9th July and the album 25 on July 23rd.

2011 : Carlos Ferreira is not a member of the BBB anymore since September. In October, Kenny "Krayzee" Lewis (he used to collaborate with C.C.Catch, Touché and Mark'Oh) replaced him.

2012 : Kenny Lewis left the project. John McInerney remains the only member. Carlos now tours in Poland with a band under the name Bad Boys New. Bad Boys Blue's new album is almost ready...
