Status Quo deserves a much larger audience

At the beginning of 2017, I was ready for a new musical challenge. I had played Down, Down and Roll Over Lay Down in the past and these songs had always suited me. Status Quo gave me the ultimate reason to invest in Telecaster guitars and Vox and Marshall amplifiers: the rest is history.

Now, after a large number of successful shows with Status Quo Forever and a lot of knowledge of the repertoire of these British rock heroes, I have come to love Status Quo very much. Not only wonderful guitar rock in which Rossi and Parfitt complement each other perfectly, but also fantastic uplifting songs with great lyrics and harmonious vocals. Status Quo is so much more than three boogie-woogie-style chords and deserves a much larger audience.
