Johnny Edward

Kevin Best is owner and Director of Bestoflondonmusic, He is a song writer/producer and manager. Kevin had several songs released one being Q-Tee's Gimme that Body, that went top 40 in 1996, also featured on 3 top selling compilations, sisters of swing (vol2) - Just vybing (vol 3) & The worlds greatest rap album.  

Kevin was then signed to Warner Chappell publishing (Part of Warner Bros) he was also part of the first ever Rnb/SwingBeat compilation in 1993 called "IN FULL SWING"  with the underground hit Wanna make you jack by Weird Mc.

Kevin now writes and manages up and coming acts Siobhan Marie & The girl group Vantage.

Johnny Edward has worked in the music business since first starting out as a lead guitarist with Davy Jones and the Manish Boys at the tender age of seventeen. When the group split, Davy metamorphosed into David Bowie.

 

Johnny’s biggest success in the music industry was as producer, publisher and video director of the infamous Renée and Renato international number one chart topper, ‘Save Your Love’, (two million sales). The record was released on his own label, Hollywood Records, and was the first totally independent record to reach the coveted Christmas number one spot in the UK, being distributed by Pinnacle. He was also co-writer of the song with his wife, Sue.

 

Renée and Renato continued a successful career in Continental Europe and Australia, with a further 3 singles and two albums being released.  Even today ‘Save Your Love’ is much in demand for compilation albums in Europe and has recently been used in a TV ad in Scandinavia.

He is the creator and voice of the robot Metal Mickey who starred in his own sitcom ‘Metal Mickey’ which was shown on London Weekend Television with some 39 shows to his credit on the 12 million rated show (Jictar). The character was so successful that, even now, the name Metal Mickey is synonymous with robots.

 

Johnny has had a long and varied career.  He was editor and space salesman of his own magazine, Beat ’64, and was among the first breed of pirate Deejays on Big ‘L’ (Radio London).

 

His earliest success as an A&R man was with a small label, King Records, who attracted the major Canadian group Guess Who? John’s co-production only dented the chart at 45, but left him with a taste for production, after which started his own company as a manager, agent and publisher.

 

As an independent record producer, he notched up thirty single releases on most major labels and three albums including the cult blues albums ‘Killing Floor’ and ‘Out Of Uranus’ by Killing Floor. He also published ‘Pepperbox’ by the Peppers which charted at number five and was manager/agent of Edison Lighthouse, whom he led to a number one hit with ‘Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes.’ produced by Tony McCauley.

 

He then gave birth to Hollywood Studios, one time breeding ground of Dire Straits, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart, Crusaders, plus Heavy Metal band Iron Maiden. After the enormous success of ‘Save Your Love’, he transformed the rehearsal suite into an Eastlake designed quality 24 track recording studio which spawned S-Express, Bomb The Bass, and early Pete Waterman production work etc.,

 

Johnny achieved a cult following for his early production work when Tenth Planet Records released a limited collectors edition of some of his early work for many of the major labels.

 

Johnny is currently re-launching the career of Metal Mickey and a design team is working on a re-vamp, giving the loveable robot legs, arms and fingers.

 

As well as staying with the original robot, he will also become a CG character this time around and his new look will be composited with live action in a projected new sitcom.

 

Johnny has recently re-found his creative spark and has produced and directed a new pop video based on the pop track he recently engineered and produced of Agrophonia, a pop duo with a light-hearted 'mission' to remove all mobile phones from the face of the earth!

The track and video has won fabulous plaudits from show business professionals who were invited to view the video privately.
