Deep Purple All I Got Is You
With more than 118 million records sold all over the world, Status Quo are one of the most important UK Rock bands of all time. Founded by guitarist Francis Rossi and bassist Alan Lancaster in 1962 they later became The Status Quo which infl uenced generations of musicians and entertained millions with their driving, no-nonsense brand of Rock.
As of today they have recorded 63 British hit singles - more than any other band - 22 of which have hit the Top Ten. Status Quo have made 106 appearances on BBC TV’s ‘Top of the Pops’ - More than any other group. They have spent in excess of seven and a half years (415 weeks) in the British Singles Chart - The eleventh highest ever and have had more hit albums (32) in the British Albums Chart than any other band apart from The Rolling Stones. Today Status Quo are: Francis Rossi (vocal; guitar), Rick Parfi tt (guitar) - both being the only original members in the current line-up. Keyboard player Andrew Bown joined in 1976, John ‘Rhino‘ Edwards (bass) joined in 1986 and Matt Letley (drums) arrived in May 2000. The band is currently working on their new studio album “Quid Pro Quo” to be released on earMUSIC in early 2011.
