The Pirates

Johnny Kidd & The Pirates were responsible for the classic hit 'Shakin' all Over' - but the death of Johnny Kidd meant the band split up. Many years later in 1976, 3 former members of the band reformed for what was to be one-off reunion gig. However, due to the favourable response from the press & audience, the band became a permanant fixture. They wrote new songs, & brought out 3 albums in the 70's, but eventually split in 1983. The band has resurfaced on various occaisions since then, & lead guitarist Mick Green recently featured on Paul McCartney's 'Run Devil Run' album.
