Biography

Bad Boys Blue was formed in the summer of 1984 by German producer Tony Hendrik and his lyricist wife Karin Van Harren. Hendrik was looking to create an alternative to the hugely successful German group Modern Talking. Ironically, Dieter Bohlen, mastermind and song writer of Modern Talking, is often incorrectly credited with developing their signature sound and being their producer.

The original trio comprised of American Andrew Thomas, British John McInerney, and Jamaican Trevor Taylor - the original lead vocalist. The 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 massive success, reaching the top 10 in many European countries.

Trevor Taylor provided the lead vocal for the group’s early hit singles including You’re A Woman and Pretty Young Girl. The 1987 single Come Back And Stay was the first to feature John McInerney on lead vocal. Although the track was originally recorded as demo with Trevor Taylor’s voice, the producers subjectively chose John McInerney’s version. This created tension within the group which ultimately lead to Trevor Taylor’s departure. John McInerney went on to perform lead vocal on the vast majority of Bad Boys Blue’s output.
