Billy the Kid
This brash pop metal quartet was formed in Los Angeles, USA, during 1984 by vocalist Stephen Frederick and guitarist Bill L’Kid. With the addition of Jeffrey Velvet (bass) and Randy Delay (ex-Georgia Satellites; drums), they signed a contract with MCA Records the following year. Fusing the energy and flamboyance of Van Halen with the commercial sensibilities of REO Speedwagon, they recorded the impressive Sworn To Fun in 1985. Failing to attract media interest, they disbanded soon after the album’s release.
