It is 54 years since Richard, Terry and John got together as a band.... and 51 years since Penny Farthing records unleashed Heatwave on an unsuspecting public, receiving enormous waves of apathy.  Word on the web is... said 'pop group' planned to celebrate the occasion with a June 2016 reunion in Northampton ~ but, it was canceled by Terry!

 11th November 2018,  Pete turned 70 years old and had a get-together at the complex where he lives near Basildon, Essex.  Richard and John accompanied by their wives went along. John took his bass and Rich his guitar and they and Pete had an impromptu jam which was good fun as it turned out.  They just played a few oldies they sort of remembered and, as John admitted, he thoroughly enjoyed playing an instrument again. Terry was in Florida at the time and so missed it and Martin wasn't invited.
