Additional notes
Started out as a cover band in 1981 (with Hammer, Darrow and More in the lineup) playing (mostly) Thin Lizzy covers but with the addition of Ronnie Atkins in 1982 they started writing their own material.

Since Pretty Maids didn't break through in USA, Allan Delong, Ricky Marx and Phil More left the band in 1991 leaving just Atkins and Hammer. The band was actually split up for a little while but then Atkins and Hammer decided that the over-produced Jump the Gun shouldn't be the epitaph of Pretty Maids and then they found Jackson (who were the boyfriend of Hammer's niece) and Fast (Fast had formerly played in Kalundborg-based Hero and he and Hammer had talked about doing something together and so Fast became a member of PM).

The first album with the new Lineup, Sin-decade, won a Danish Grammy Award in 1993.

The Danish song, Det bedste til mig og mine venner, which appears on the "B est of... Back To Back" is taken from the tribute album FiFi Dong, which was a tribute to legendary Danish rock group Gasolin'.

In 1998, Pretty Maids received another Danish Grammy Award: This time for the Spooked album.

In December 2003 Ken Hammer was diagnosed with a blood clot in his heart but made a full recovery.

Summer 2005: Michael Fast leaves the band after a 14 year run. The band currently finds themselves without a drummer but continue working on material for the next album.

Из самых ранних - Future World, из девяностых - однозначно Spooked, из более поздних - очень неплох Pandemonium. Титульные песни с Carpe Diem и Wake up to the Real World тоже отличные.
