John Healy was born in London in 1943 to Irish immigrant parents in London's Kentish Town district. Leaving school at the age of 14, he spent the formative years of his life in the army, where he had a successful boxing career. Having been dishonourably discharged for drunkenness and going absent without leave, Healy started on a downward spiral that brought him into the subculture of London's homeless street drinkers. He spent fifteen years as a homeless wino and was convicted of many petty crimes during this time.
