Biography of John Edward McInerney

John Edward McInerney, the lead vocalist of the iconic band Bad Boys Blue, was born on September 7, 1957, in the industrial district of Liverpool, United Kingdom. Tragically, he became an orphan at a young age and was raised by his grandmother. McInerney had a passion for music from childhood and even made an appearance on British television as a child, singing The Beatles' hit song "She Loves You."

In 1979, McInerney relocated to West Germany, where he worked as a decorator and a stockbroker. The history of Bad Boys Blue began in 1984 in Cologne when the band was formed by their initial producers to perform their song "L.O.V.E. In My Car," which became their first single. However, the group gained immense popularity in 1985 with the release of their second single, "You're A Woman," which became Bad Boys Blue's signature song and a disco mega-hit of the 80s.

In 1987, McInerney became the lead vocalist of the group. Since its formation, the band has recorded over twenty albums. In 1991, Bad Boys Blue visited Moscow for the first time, participating in a charity concert to support children affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. According to McInerney, they have since performed in more than fifty cities in Russia.

In 2005, McInerney parted ways with Andrew Thomas, the other longstanding member of Bad Boys Blue. While legal proceedings regarding the division of their creative legacy and label rights continue, both artists continue to tour under the name Bad Boys Blue. To avoid confusion, they are now referred to as Bad Boys Blue (Andrew Thomas & Co.) and John McInerney's Bad Boys Blue. Recently, Andrew Thomas has been performing under the name "The Real Bad Boys Blue."

Aside from his music career, McInerney is the owner of two Irish pubs in Cologne. He has three children, with his sons being 16 and 18 years old, and his daughter being just over a year old.
