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!
