Rochester Castle Review
Mark Taylor's review of Quo's show at Rochester Castle on July 13th on Metaltalk:
Simon was an inspiration to everyone he met, he battled with a succession of serious illnesses throughout his life, none of which stopped him exploring his many talents as a musician, artist and photographer.
Quo fans will be familiar with his brilliant Quo photographs, many of which have been included on this site and in Quo tour programmes. Amongst other things, he also played drums with Chas And Dave, and for the Quo cover band Quoincidence.
Quo, their management and all at the official site would like to extend their deepest sympathies to Simon's family at this sad time.

‘Aquostic II - One More For The Road’ plus huge BBC Hyde Park show
Status Quo are delighted to confirm that on 21 October 2016 they will release ‘Aquostic II - One More For The Road’, the follow up to the phenomenally successful ‘Aquostic (Stripped Bare)’ album of 2015 which was a Gold-certified Top 5 hit, giving the band their highest chart placing for 18 years.
Additionally - as announced on Chris Evans’ BBC R2 Breakfast Show - they will perform a very special one-off ‘Aquostic’ show in Hyde Park at BBC Radio 2’s ‘Festival In A Day’ on 11 September 2016.
‘Aquostic II - One More For The Road’ will be released via Universal Music TV - and will once again feature, ahem, eye-catching photography from none other than Bryan Adams. The tracklisting for this carefully curated collection of reimagined Quo classics include ‘In The Army Now’, ‘Hold You Back’, ‘Roll Over Lay Down’, ‘Ice in The Sun’ and three brand new exclusive tracks.
With their ‘Aquostic’ initiative, after 50 years at the top of their game as one of the world’s premiere hard rock acts, Quo have leapt out of their comfort zone. The Hyde Park show will feature the full Aquostic sixteen piece band. With the band having stated that ‘The Last Night Of The Electrics Tour’ which comes to venues across the UK in December 2016 will be the last ever tour featuring the thunderous Telecaster sound, it’s time to look ahead. This is the future.

Rocking All Rover The World - Quo support Dogs Trust with 'Dog Of Two Head' Beer
Tails are wagging at Dogs Trust thanks to the launch of a new British premium ale 'Dog Of Two Head' created by Quo and Hobsons Brewery (see below), who will donate 5% of the profits to the UK’s largest dog welfare charity to help dogs in need of new homes.
To celebrate the launch, ‘pint’ sized pooches at Dogs Trust’s West London rehoming centre greeted Rick and Francis with licks and wags and enjoyed some cuddles as they were given a tour to learn more about the charity’s work. The band also had fun meeting their ‘doggy doppelgangers’ picked out by Dogs Trust staff.
As dog lovers themselves, owning eight dogs between them, Rick and Francis chose to support Dogs Trust because of the charity’s commitment to care for dogs for as long as it takes to find them a home.
Francis Rossi says: “Dogs Trust is a cracking charity doing brilliant work to help all kinds of dogs. We like that they won’t put a healthy dog to sleep so we wanted to give something back. I have three dogs of my own who enjoy the good life and without being able to adopt any more, for now anyway, this is the next best thing we could do to help.”
Rick Parfitt says: “My wife and I are ‘owned’ by five pint sized dogs – they tend to get whatever they want, whatever they need! They bring us a lot of laughter with their cheeky antics. We sponsor two dogs being cared for by Dogs Trust so Francis and I wanted the sales to help the dogs they look after. We hope the profits go some way to finding more dogs new homes.”
Dogs Trust’s CEO, Adrian Burder, says: “We’re incredibly grateful for this support from Status Quo. Our staff strive to affect the status of dog welfare through campaigning to improve the lives of all dogs, so it’s a privilege to be able to show Francis and Rick the work we do to find dogs loving homes.”
Quo Drinks Range - 'Down Down' cider and 'Dog Of Two Head' beer
Quo have teamed up with a pair of great British producers to create a duo of classic drinks: the 'Down Down' cider and the 'Dog Of Two Head' ale - watch the videos
Both 'Down Down' and 'Dog Of Two Head' are being made available, bottled, nationally through the Spar chain from 18th May. ‘Dog Of Two Head’ will be available to buy on draught at selected outlets from June. ‘Down Down’ has been selected for Wetherspoon’s National Cider Festival which runs from Friday 8th July.
Francis and Rick have been involved in the brewing process and cider making right from the off, visiting the facilities, working with each of the relevant teams in choosing the individual elements that give each product their satisfying and refreshing quality – and even spending a day harvesting apples for the cider.
'Dog Of Two Head' - created in conjunction with Hobsons Brewery in Shropshire, is a chestnut amber traditional ale with a modern citrus twist delivered by the British hops. This is a subtle ale deftly uniting and balancing the influences of malt, hops and natural bitterness. ‘Dog’ is created by Hobsons from British malting barley, and a blend of UK-grown Fuggles, Challenger, Goldings and Progress hops.
'Down Down' - crafted by the Celtic Marches company in Herefordshire, is a beautifully-rounded golden, medium cider, with a well-balanced finish. Drawing on generations of heritage and expertise, ‘Down Down’ is made with the finest fresh-pressed cider apples which are grown on the Celtic Marches family farm. The cider will be available in three formats: Carbonated in 500ml bottles and 30 Litre keg, and Still in 20 Litre boxes.
Both 'Dog Of Two Head' and 'Down Down' will be available online. The beer from www.hobsons-brewery.co.uk The cider from: www.celticmarches.com
