Bad Boys Blue is a German pop group first formed in Germany in 1984 as an alternative to the group Modern Talking, Bad Boys Blue developed a unique style and delivery. Tracks like You’re A Woman, Lady In Black, and I Wanna Hear Your Heartbeat helped define a generation.
Bad Boys Blue was formed in the summer of 1984 by German producer Tony Hendrik and his lyricist wife Karin van Haaren. The original trio consisted of singers Trevor “Supa T” Taylor from Jamaica (the original lead vocalist), John McInerney from the UK, and Andrew Thomas from the US. Their debut single “L.O.V.E. in My Car” failed to make an impression in the pop charts but the follow-up “You’re a Woman” was a success, reaching the top 10 in many European countries.
The group has experienced numerous line-up changes. In 1988, Trevor Taylor left the group a year after being gradually demoted from his role of the lead singer. He was asked to rejoin the group the following year just for recording sessions for the “Hungry for Love” single that was to be featured on the group’s first compilation album Bad Boys Best. Trevor Taylor’s departure permanently secured John McInerney’s position as the band’s new lead vocalist. Trevor Taylor was replaced by Trevor Bannister (born August 5, 1965, in Grimsby, England), whose function in the group was mainly to perform Trevor Taylor’s hits in live gigs.
