Graham Russell & Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975, the first day of rehearsals for Jesus Christ Superstar in Sydney, Australia; they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing. Air Supply was born.
Clive Davis signed the band to Arista Records and in 1980, Lost in Love became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. Now Air Supply was on their way. The second single was All Out of Love, and that went up the charts even quicker.
Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles. The albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever, and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies.
