Rod Temperton net worth 2017, biography & wiki:

Temperton’s work brought the interest of Quincy Jones, and he requested his engineer Bruce Sweden to have a look at the Heatwave record. “Holy cow! I just adored Rod’s musical feeling – everything about it – Rod’s musical arrangements, his melodies, his songs – was terribly cool,” remembered Sweden. In spite of the glossy American sound, Temperton’s working atmosphere were still far from glamorous. And producer Barry Blue remembered: “He had a tiny flat, so everything needed to be performed within one room and he’d loads of washing, and had the T.V. on top of the electric organ. It ended up being a nightmare (…) he’d trams running outside (…) but he made it, he simply consumed himself in the music and Rod appeared to appear with one of these incredible tunes.” In 1977 Heatwave followed up the success of their first L.P. with their second, Central Heating, Barry Blue again making, and Temperton behind the bulk of the tunes. It contained “The Groove Line”, another tremendous selling hit single with the by now familiar Heatwave sound and Rod Temperton hook. In 1978 Temperton made a decision to focus on writing and left Heatwave though he continued to compose for the group.
