Rock Ballad of the Week: Kingdom Come “Now and Forever After”

It ‘s perfect when we touch
The signs are shining bright
We just can ‘t get enough
This much we know

[Chorus]
Oh, it ‘s so right
Time has come, it ‘s
Now, forever after
Now, sharing our laughter
For better or worse
Until we die
Now, forever after
Now, sharing our laughter
Until the end of time

There ‘s magic in our eyes
Which no one else can see
A flame that will not die
Shedding it ‘s glow

We ‘re wiser now by far
Our hearts are bound so tight
We know what we must do
Where we must go

WOLF, LENNY / KOTTAK, JAMES / WOLFF, MARTIN

Kingdom Come is a German heavy metal/hard rock band fronted by Hamburg-born vocalist Lenny Wolf (born as Frank Wöllschlager). The group’s first album, Kingdom Come is to date the band’s most internationally popular and biggest selling recording.

The group was formed in 1987 after the breakup of Wolf’s moderately successful rock project Stone Fury. Wolf recruited Pittsburgh-based lead guitarist Danny Stag, Louisvillians Rick Steier (guitar) and James Kottak (drums) and Ravenna, Italian-born Johnny B. Frank on bass and keyboards. Stag and Frank had previously been members of the bands Industrials (CBS Int’l), produced by Kim Fowley; WWIII;[1] and Population 5, which included bassist Prescott Niles (The Knack) and future Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum. Frank was also at one point the keyboard player for Josie Cotton. Kingdom Come marked the first band where Wolf sang without playing guitar. The frontman later admitted that, for a while, it was a very awkward adjustment.
