-THE PRETTY THINGS (FINAL ACOUSTIC SHOW EVER) - OLD EVENT

The Pretty Things have been at the heart of the UK Rhythm & Blues Scene for over 50 years. 2018 will be their final tour and The Eel Pie Club will be hosting their FINAL ACOUSTIC SHOW EVER, featuring original vocalist, Phil May and original guitarist, Dick Taylor.

These legendary 'bad boys of rock' created some of the most exciting and innovative records of the late 60s and early 70s. In 2011 they were awarded the Hero award at the Mojo Honours and have been name-checked over the years by an array of artists ranging from The Clash, David Bowie & Aerosmith through to The Libertines and Kasabian. The Pretty Things' first 3 singles, 'Rosalyn', 'Don't Bring Me Down' and 'Honey I Need' all made the charts. The band then moved from rhythm and blues, through psychedelia, their famous rock opera, S.F. Sorrow, and heavy metal - and now back to the music that made them famous - Rhythm and Blues Phil May is on lead vocals, guitar and blues harp. Dick (also an original Rolling Stone) is on acoustic, slide and lead guitar, and Sam Brothers will be joining them on acoustic, slide guitar, backing vocals and harp maybe a guest or two.
