    Dick Taylor of the Rollin' Stones & the Pretty Things

    Dick Taylor of the Rollin' Stones & the Pretty Things

    Dick Taylor started his career with school friends Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in a group they called the Rollin' Stones but left before they cut their first album to return to art school.  
    The next year, Dick and Phil May started the Pretty Things with whom he stayed until 1969 after the release of the now critically acclaimed but initially failed rock opera "S.F. Sorrow".
    Taylor went on to produce, most notably the debut album of Hawkwind in 1970, before returning to the Pretty Things in 1979.  He remains with the group today. 

    The Pretty Things recently announced that they would be retiring from playing electric shows by the end of 2018.

    Gary Brooker of Procol Harum

    Gary Brooker of Procol Harum

    On March 23, Procol Harum released an eight-disc box set chronicling the band's history both in the studio and live. 
    The one person who has been there for that entire history is lead singer Gary Brooker.  Brooker and Robin Trower came from the band the Paramounts, who had a couple of minor hits in Britain in the early-60's before forming Procul Harum in 1966.  
    The new band had a major international hit with their first single, "A Whiter Shade of Pale" and led the way in the incorporation of symphony accompaniment with progressive rock music.  
    Procol Harum continues to record new material including last year's Novum.
