Always and Forever – Heatwave
One of the most classic love songs of all time was sung by the 70s hit group Heatwave, founded by lead singer Johnnie Wilder. The group had many hits but Always and Forever remains the most memorable smash from the group. The late writer Rod Temperton was a member of the original group when Johnnie Wilder met him while performing in clubs in the UK as a serviceman.
Wilder had an unfortunate accident at the height of the group’s career in 1979 which left him paralyzed from the neck down. He later became good friends with the late Teddy Pendergrass who also had a car accident that left him paralyzed in 1982. The group didn’t have many hits in the 80s but Rod Temperton went on to become one of the most sought after writers in music penning smash hits for a multitude of singers but most notably Michael Jackson’s Thriller album.
