Phil May used the same leisure centre as me and I sort of got to know him, after a mutual friend introduced us in the changing room(!) He was always a friendly cheerful fella, happy to chat. I knew he'd had a very serious health scare a few years ago with COPD but recovered and was looking after himself - he would use the swimming pool and gym for gentle exercise.
I last saw him maybe 6 months ago and to be honest he was looking a bit frail but cheerful as ever. When the virus thing kicked off he was one of those I feared for, but hearing that his passing was NOT covid-related, but rather from post-surgery complications after he crashed his bike - I don't know whether to cry or (sort of) laugh. RIP Phil.
SF Sorrow is great but I think I prefer the Pretty Things' R&B era. There's some full-tilt live footage from Holland in 1965 that is streets ahead of anything the Stones, Who or Kinks were conjuring up on stage at the time. No wonder they all cited the PTs as inspirational.
All those early R 'n' B tracks are indeed great. Real high energy stuff.

Good bye Astrid, you invented the 'cool' rock group if you ask me. Not that anyone did.

Astrid’s photos of a then-unknown club band are timeless, and certainly added to their appeal. Of course the subject matter was good, but she had a great eye and technical skill as a photographer.
And by all accounts she was always very modest and never played on her Beatles connections- to her they were just friends from her young, student days. What a chapter to have in your life, eh? RIP

Easy to underestimate her importance to the Beatles becoming huge. Her photographs made them seem like serious artists, not just silly teenage rock n rollers. One of those overlooked steps in rock n roll becoming rock.
Exactly. Plus, she was just so cool.

Shit, we just watched A Mighty Wind last weekend. His character in that was baffling and great.

Sad about Steve, love a bit of Sweet. He was a right character as well.

Yeah, they made some great singles, and under their glam image and Steve's OTT camp persona they were a seriously hard rocking band.
