Pretty Maids

Danish hard rock band the Pretty Maids were formed in 1981 by singer Ronnie Atkins and guitarist Ken Hammer; adding guitarist Pete Collins, bassist John Darrow, and drummer Phil More, the group recorded a demo which earned them a contract with the British label Bullet, resulting in the 1983 release of their self-titled debut EP. That same year, the Pretty Maids supported Black Sabbath on their tour of Scandinavia, and after replacing Collins with guitarist Ricky Hansson and Darrow with bassist Allan Delong, the band entered the studio to record their first LP for new label CBS, 1984's Red, Hot and Heavy. Hansson's tenure proved short-lived, however, and Collins returned to the lineup for a tour lasting through 1985; two years later, the Pretty Maids resurfaced with Future World. While recording the follow-up, drummer More was severely injured in a car crash, and the resulting LP Jump the Gun did not appear until 1990; by the end of the year, a series of defections reduced the roster to the original duo of Atkins and Hammer, who recruited bassist Kenn Jackson and drummer Michael Fast to cut 1992's Sin-Decade, scoring a major hit in Europe and Japan with the single "Please Don't Leave Me." An acoustic effort, Stripped, appeared in 1993, followed a year later by Scream; in 1995, the Pretty Maids also issued their first official live record, Screamin' Live. Subsequent releases include 1997's Spooked and 1999's Anything Worth Doing Is Worth Overdoing. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Pretty maids has so much more music in their line up. Where is it all. They are one of the best metal bands out there. Let em keep it comming.
Very unrated band.
I love Future World
Most underrated band of all time. Took 31 years, but just saw their first show on US soil this past Saturday.

@ mmkriston: I disagree slightly. Pretty strong cover, but some important nuances of blackmores playing that were integral parts of the original version are just flat out missing here. kinda dissapointin g .
their Deep Purple song (Perfect Strangers) is a really strong cover. Amazing, almost. They keep true to the original, but add subtle differences that show off the talents of this band - singer's holding a note, sometimes adding a little waver to it.... guitarists use of reverb... awesome.
First Listen... thanks pandora so many killer bands and albums... down side is im gona have to take a 3rd job to suport my cd buing habbits

These Danish Dudes are awesum!!!!
I f**king love Pretty Maids. I first discovered them when I bought an album from one of my favorite bands - Hammerfall, that had a cover of "Back to Back". It's such a happy feeling when I discover 80s hair metal bands that are new to me, it's like opening a present on christmas morning. Lol it's like "OMG I CAN'T WAIT TO LISTEN TO ALL THEIR SONGS!!!"
Yep, looks like the Danish boys covered the DP track on one of their albums...and it's quite good I might add!
Javier that is the Deep Purple song.
None from me, I'm afraid; totally clueless on that one.
The song Perfect Strangers on Pretty Maids albulm Wake Up To The Real World sounds exactly like Perfect Strangers on Deep Purple's Perfect Stranger albulm. Did they record an exact replica or is there a mistake? I am not a trained musicologist but it sounds like the Deep Purple version on the Pretty Maids cd. Any insight?
