Фил Мэй о кончине Питера Толсона
"~ PETE TOLSON - 1951 TO 2016 ~
A FLAWED GENIUS......?
IN SOME WAYS PETE'S TALENT WAS HIS UNDOING - BUT THAT TALENT WAS LOST TO THOSE OF US THAT CARED FOR HIM A LONG TIME AGO. ONLY IN THE GROOVES OF A MULTITUDE OF INCANDESCENT SOLOS AND SMOKING RIFFS ON PRETTY THINGS ALBUMS CAN THAT WONDERFUL TALENT STILL BE FOUND. UNFORTUNATELY, LIKE SO MANY OTHER, SPECIALLY GIFTED BEINGS, HE CARRIED THE ALMOST OBLIGATORY, SELF DESTRUCT BUTTON - AND AFTER YEARS OF STRUGGLE HE EVENTUALLY PUSHED IT. I'VE LOST A GREAT PRETTY THING AND CO -CREATOR AND HIS TWO SONS HAVE LOST A FATHER.
SO SO SAD.

R.I.P. Peter Tolson (1951 - 2016)
tolson

Ugly Things Magazine сообщает:
"I'm very sad to report the death of Peter Tolson. He joined the Pretty Things in 1970 just after they'd completed the Parachute album, and was with the band throughout the 1970s and into the early '80s, playing on the albums Freeway Madness, Silk Torpedo, Savage Eye and Crosstalk. He was a superbly gifted lead guitarist, but also an eccentric loner with zero tolerance for bullshit or bluster. In 1978 he was invited to join the Scorpions, a lucrative gig at the time -- and he needed the money badly (the Pretty Things had broken up for a few years) -- but after flying to Germany and hearing their music he put his guitar back in its case and went straight home complaining that it was "shit." A man of integrity... R.I.P. Peter Tolson."

Dick Taylor is 73 today
Update: Кстати, их концерт в московском "Крокус Сити-холле" по-прежнему значится в программе заведения.
29 марта, The Pretty Things - группа, по сравнению с которой, как писала британская пресса середины 1960-х, бледнели "Роллинг Стоунз".
