Heavy Metal Kids

Heavy Metal Kids (1973-1977): a Hard Rock band from London, UK.


ary Holdon (vocals), Mickey Waller (guitar), Ron Thomas (bass) and Keith Boyce (drums) came together to form Heavy Metal Kids, a name that ended off suiting them better than the previously suggested, Free. Playing a raggedy style of hard rock, they launched their eponymous debut on 'Atlantic' in 1974 to gain a cult following, mostly in the London area. Adding keyboardist Denny Peyronel and Cosmo on guitars prior to the release of the follow-up Anvil Circus saw them close 1975 off of their label. After replacing Peyronel with John Sinclair, and Waller with Barry Paul they would try one more attempt with 1976's Kitsch on the 'Rak' label only in England. Failing to win over the crowd they closed up shop in 1977, Holton going on to a solo career then into TV acting before dying of a drug overdose in the mid 1980s.
