The Pretty Things are music history. Guitarist Dick Taylor was an original member of The Rolling Stones, singer Phil May was David Bowie’s greatest inspiration.

The Pretty Things formed in Britain in 1963. Dick had just left The Stones. Their first two songs ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’ and ‘Rosalyn’ were UK hits. Bowie covered both on his Pin-Ups album.

The Pretty Things album ‘S.F. Sorrow’ was also the first ever rock opera. Pete Townshend ran with the idea and a year later created The Who’s ‘Tommy’.

The Pretty Things toured Australia for the very first time in 2012 and dropped into Noise11.com.
