Keith Wilder

Posted on 14 November 2017 by Brian Walsh

Keith Wilder, lead singer and co-founder of Heatwave with his late brother Johnny, died Sunday (October 29) at the age of 68. The Dayton, Ohio native joined Johnny (who had been performing in Germany) in England in 1975. Signed to GTO Records there (and distributed by Epic Records in the US), they hit the charts with funk hits like “Boogie Nights” (#2-1977), “The Groove Line” (#7-1978) and the ballad “Always And Forever” (#18-1978). Keith continued to perform in various incarnations of the group over the years, even after the paralysis and later death of Johnny.
