My nan loved them. She died in 01. She will have him a glass of whisky and a fag waiting. 

 

Oh they were shit. Still a shame.

I went to Berlin the morning after Istanbul and was bladdered still when I got to Germany. Picked up the wrong bag at the airport and had to go back in a cab to swap it. Me and the German driver who couldn't speak a word of English conversed through the medium of music and sung 'We're in the army now' to each other on the way.

I remember him giving an interview to a Sunday paper saying he was off the booze and drugs. The next week he was found upside down in his car in a ditch, pissed and holding coke. Good lad, rehab is for quitters.

Pictures of Matchstick Men was excellent and just before their fingers got stuck on the same guitar chords for 50 years.

I can't slag the Quo off for that when I love The Ramones so much.

Everybody takes the piss out of Status Quo, dad band, all the songs sound the same, all the rest of it and most of it is deserved, but I'm actually more gutted about this than I thought I would be because the first time I can remember hearing a piece of music that really fucking grabbed hold of me was courtesy of a very loud DJ at a family wedding when I was about seven and it was this:

 

 

Now you can say a musically naive seven year old is bang on the level they were pitched at and again, I won't argue much but 38 years later I still listen to guitar bands more than anything else.  Cheers Rick, hope God has a few lines racked up for you.

Always liked Status Quo, one of my favourite bands as a kid.

Year end cannot come soon enough

Never my cup of tea, but sorry for your loss mate.

 

I'm here to help.

 

Whatever you want, whatever you need.

Sad news, there is always one Quo tune that people like. Like Cloggy said, I love the Ramones so slagging the Quo off would be wrong. Part of growing up and getting into adult music, 2016 strikes yet again. The powers that be have assembled a nice bunch of people this year.
