That reassures the girl! This blonde English woman photographed next to Johnny is a little singer, Kim Wilde, as he wanted to be the sponsor of her debut on French television. Kim is the daughter of Marty Wilde, star of English rock in the Fifties and Sixties. All of the good fairies of rock have focused on her cradle. At nineteen, she has recorded her first disc’Kids in america’, a song writen by her brother, Ricky Wilde. Her producer is no-one less than Mickie Most: a man who has launched Brenda Lee, Nancy Sinatra et Suzy Quatro, amongst others. In England, she has sold 25.000 singles a day. And this new rock woman is so amazing that Johnny has claimed her for his show programmed on Antenne 2 at the end of April. She will be the only woman invited to participate in the macho show where (other than her) only men have been invited.
