Status Quo-Quid Pro Quo

I was a teenager in the 70s when these guys where playing but today to me they seem to be jamming even heavier. I noticed this even in the playing of my brother, who plays bass with his band The Rage as time moves on the player are more seasoned and the amp just gets louder and louder.

You’ll never hear me complain.

Status Quo:

Their twenty-ninth studio album, Quid Pro Quo, was released in a deluxe format exclusively at Tesco on 30 May 2011. The regular edition will be released elsewhere on 7 June. The album charted at number 10 in the UK charts.

In September 2011 Quo began filming their first cinematic documentary with Emmy nominated director Alan G. Parker. Provisionally entitled ‘Hello Quo!’, the production is planned for release in the autumn of 2012.

December 2011 will see Status Quo undertake their first all arenas UK winter tour. Quo will also perform their first ever gig at the O2 arena in London. The tour is dubbed ‘Quofest’ and will see Roy Wood and Kim Wilde as support for all shows.

Status Quo – Rockin All Over The World (from “Live At Montreux 2009”)

Time for a couple of Rockers:

Status Quos album Pictures (released in November 2008) celebrated 40 years of Status Quo filling the UK charts with hit after hit. The album was an instant success, charting at No.8 and selling over a quarter of a million copies in the UK alone. In July 2009 the Pictures live tour landed at Montreux in Switzerland as part of the world-famous festival.

The band, lead as always by the twin Telecasters of Francis Rossi & Rick Parfitt, delivered a blistering set of hits and classic tracks.
