OK hands up, I have exercised a degree of poetic licence here. 'Q' is a difficult one, I have nothing by Queen and Quiet Riot or the Quire Boys are not my thing at all. And so I give you Quo. Now before you recoil in horror, pause for one second, this is not the normal denim and leather fodder that the band had been churning out for decades, for this is an acoustic set..... quite a few old bands have tried it I understand! With this different take on that familiar sound it is clear that much of the material is pretty good and well written..... oh and 'Pictures of Matchstick' is a classic of the psychadelic era!
I saw Status Quo once, well that said I stood and watched them for 15 minutes at Reading Festival in 1987, just to be able to say that I had seen them. We returned to the test for more alcohol and laughed as they were still cranking out the hits 2 hours later.
It's funny, but they have the reputation that all their songs sound the same, but years ago at a local pub quiz there was an intros round with you guessed it, 20 Quo intros. We scored 20/20 and all the titles were indeed different.
