Chanteur Anglais né Frederick Heath, le 23 Novembre 1939 à Willesden (Londres). Johnny Kidd forme son premier groupe "Freddie Heath And The Nutters" et début 1959, "Johnny Kidd And The Pirates" qui enregistrent en Mai leur premier album. Il devient alors l'une des grandes attractions de la scène Rock Britannique avec un show violent et théatral. En Avril 66, les "Pirates" se séparent et Johnny engage les "Régents". Johnny Kidd est mort le 7 Octobre 1966 à Radcliffe, à 26 ans, dans un accident de voiture.
