Leee John
Leee John
Singer

One of the defining bands of its time, Imagination was formed in 1981 and by the end of that year had three hit singles, Body Talk, In and out of Love and Flashback, with the Body Talk album achieving double gold status and remaining in the charts for 51 weeks. In the following years, the band went from strength to strength, selling a million copies of Just an Illusion and their next three albums all went double gold, interspersed by two sell-out European tours and a capacity audience at the Albert Hall celebrated the band's fifth anniversary. As well as regularly appearing on chat show sofas across the land, Leee secured a place in TV history by getting the lead role of Mancel in the cult programme Dr. Who.

By the end of an amazing first decade of success, Leee John and Imagination had achieved a total of 105 weeks on the UK singles chart and 108 weeks on the UK album chart. In the early 1990's Leee secured his own chat show on LWT and embarked upon world tours that took in countries such as India, Sri Lanka, the Middle East, South Africa and Russia. The release of a Greatest Hits album kept the momentum going, and Leee has spent a significant amount of time performing in Europe as well as songwriting and producing for other artists such as Maxi Priest, Byron Stingly, Club 69, Alison Limerick and Ultimate Chaos whilst also developing a new career as a roving reporter on VH-1. But performing is his first love and Leee had a spell on the West End stage in The Hot Mikado before accepting the challenge of ITV1's Reborn in the USA tour in 2002 and reminding us all of his extraordinary range of musical talents.

Since then, the phone hasn't stopped ringing!
