    Martin & Terry Co-Write 'Sailin' Away' ...

    1970/1971... Heatwave played, 'It's Over Now' and 'Rainmaker Man' written by Martin (drummer).
    Richard (lead guitarist) played bottle-neck electric slide on the latter which was recorded at the BBC and twice aired on the Jimmy Young BBC Worldwide Show.

    As a result, John Edward paid the princely sum of 1/- to publish the song.
    The money was invested in a Mars bar and cup of tea at the Blue Boar on the M1 on the way home from a gig.

    Unfortunately, no recordings of either song seem to have survived.


    2013... Martin and Terry (rhythm guitarist) were reunited in Florida, U.S.A.

    2014... when Terry was back in the U.K., Martin sent him some lyrics and finally, after 45 years, they co-wrote their first song.

    Terry sang and played all the instruments on, 'Sailin' Away'.
