L.A. GUNS/ex-GIRL vocalist Phil Lewis has joined the U.K. cult band HEAVY METAL KIDS as the group's new frontman.

John Altman (a.k.a. Johnny Rio and "EastEnders"' "Nasty" Nick Cotton) took over the vocals in HEAVY METAL KIDS after a long hiatus and several lineup changes from the late original singer and his friend Gary Holton, also known from the '80s TV series "Auf Wiedersehen Pet". Unfortunately, John has had to step down from the role of HEAVY METAL KIDS singer due to prior acting commitments.

HEAVY METAL KIDS has lined up a two-night stint at the 2011 Harley-Davidson Festival in Biograd, Croatia on May 26-27, to be followed by an exclusive U.K. appearance at the Camden Underworld on Sunday, May 29. More shows will be announced soon.
