For a Change...Pretty Maids

Yesterday was truly mentally draining for about a million different reasons. Sometimes it takes some music I haven't listened to in awhile to bring me out of a funk. What was the cure? Pretty Maids.


Oh man, I'd forgotten how much I like this band! Pretty Maids formed in the early 1980s...with many lineup changes over the past 20+ years. I would say this band would make a nice replacement for Cinderella at Rocklahoma, but I know time is ticking and it's really hard to book a European band on such short notice.


I don't think Pretty Maids are necessarily 100% Glam -- they are more AOR, but still definitely in the vein of true 80s rock we all love.


I've never seen Pretty Maids live, but I know they've played with some huge names like Alice Cooper.


Let's watch Pretty Maid videos! Here's "Please Don't Leave Me."



Here's "Future World."



What do you think of Pretty Maids?

Great Band. Seen them at least 5 or 6 times live in the past 20+ years. The last time at the UFOR2 Festival 2006.

I wouldn't call them Glam or AOR. They are a mixture of Hard Rock and Melodic Metal. Typical European/Scandinavian Style Metal.

They would be great for Rocklahoma, but certainly not as a replacement for Cinderella.

I concur. I just wish their albums weren't so expensive here in the U.S. Of the clips I've been able to see of them on Youtube, this one is my favorite:

they are nowhere near the level of cinderella so no way should they replace them in the lineup. it is not even close.

I love Pretty Maids! Really talented band. Their '87 release, "Future World" is really good.
