"THE PRETTY THINGS Press statement, 22nd October 2014: The lead singer of The Pretty Things – Phil May – was admitted to Charing Cross hospital yesterday, after a routine doctor’s visit to collect regular medication. Hospital sources say that he was admitted for tests when his doctor found that his breathing was irregular. Tests have led to the discovery of the condition COPD, which is now being treated. He is not expected to be released from hospital before the weekend. The Pretty Things were to have started a tour of The Netherlands on the 23rd October, which has now had to be cancelled. The band and Phil May wish that their apologies be conveyed to all their fans in Holland and hope to return to fulfil dates as soon as possible." Get well soon, Phil.
