‘LIVE AT ROCKPALAST: Christmas Special’

Philipshalle, Düsseldorf, Germany, 19th December, 1998 

Rockpalast’s 1998 show was the Christmas Special from Düsseldorf on 19th December, supporting Van Morrison. It was broadcast across Germany and Europe to more than 20 million people.

The Pretty Things first formed in 1963 around the nucleus of ex-Rolling Stone Dick Taylor and vocalist Phil May. They had a hit with first single ‘Rosalyn’ in 1964 and continued to chart in R&B vein before turning psychedelic/progressive. Highlights from the group’s history include 1968’s 'S.F. Sorrow' concept album, credited as the inspiration for the Who’s ‘Tommy’. 1970’s ‘Parachute’ LP was Rolling Stone magazine’s album of the year, and the band enjoyed a renaissance in the 1970s on Swan Song Records, Led Zeppelin’s label, before going independent right up to date.

Phil May and Dick Taylor still front The Pretty Things and the band continues to put on stunning ‘live’ shows and produce great albums.
