The Pretty Things, by the time they first played Friars in 1969 had
already released the seminal SF Sorrow album, widely considered the
first rock opera. 40 years later, they played a legendary set at the
40th anniversary party.
For myself and the band, I just want to
say a big thank you to you and all the dedicated team that put the show
together and made Friars the significant force for good, that it was,
back in the day. it was a TOTALLY positive experience and one we enjoyed
absolutely. You made us welcome and the presentation of The Award to the
band was such a classy act.
