REWIND: Johnny Kidd And The Pirates - 'Please Don't Touch'

Until recently I thought that this was a Motörhead song, since the band and Girlschool released a version of it in 1982. But having heard it on the radio last week, I now know its true origins. 'Please Don't Touch' was the debut single by British rock and roll combo Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, released in 1959 reaching number 25 on the UK singles chart. Kidd died at age 30 in 1966, in a motor car accident.
