Don't know how big or known Status Quo are in the US but I feel like I've lost a friend. I bought my first record aged 6 thirty six years ago and been a Quo fan since.
Rock In Peace buddy.
As I understand, Status Quo are still held in high esteem in the UK and Europe but never really broke through in the US.
I can tell you that I bought their 45, " Pictures Of Matchstick Men" when I was a kid.
It's been a tough 365 days for the Rock community.
Ah, those days in the dormitory with music flowing out of every room. Back then the stereo system were BIG, LP were the media for R & R.
Didn't remember his name, the tune is familiar though.
RIP, too young to go.
