Pretty Things front man Phil May, who had been loved by many rock fans as the Godfather of punk rock, has died at age of 75. The band noted that he developed complications after a hip surgery, which resulted in his death.
Phil May formed the Pretty Things in 1963. During the 60's, the band gave a big impact on the UK Rock scene with an aggressive stage performance using a maracas, and longer hair style than the Rolling Stones. He gave a big influence to many vocalists such as David Bowie, John lydon (Sex Pistols), Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream) and so on. In the honor of Phil May, we'd like to present a video of the great performance of the "Road Runner", a garage rock classic tune.
