ya jeg så det der. Kommer det noe folk der da, når Quo nesten nettopp har spilt i Oslo?
Og Quo-materiale uten Parfitt? Og hva med Rossi's solo-materiale? Hehe, der er det vel
mye heart, breakin' my heart osv.... Håper det blir jævlig bra uansett, Rossi syns jeg virker
som en kul type, likevel om det sies en del dritt om han. Skal du LK?

Må vel ta en tur ja:) Bare hørt klipp fra soloskiva, mye rolige låter, men det hørtes 10 ganger bedre ut enn King of The Doghouse. Det sier vel forsåvidt ingenting egentlig:) Skiva kommer vel ikke til å gå inn i historiebøkene som en "høydare".
Det som jeg syns er rart er at han gjør en cover av Caroline på skiva...Skulle tro han var drittlei den låta der. Quo gjorde jo en nyinnspilling av den på Riffs også selv om denne er litt annerledes...

Tror konserten blir bra jeg, selv om jeg er litt spent på hva slags band han har med seg. Må stille opp på det uansett! Men, det er vel ikke å forvente at det blir like mye trøkk som Quo. Det er jo ikke en Quo-konsert heller, men Rossi-konsert. Mannen er jo fan av country og ballader så det blir vel en dose av det tenker jeg....Om det kommer folk? Nei, det er jeg spent på. Blir vel trofaste quo-fans, men tror de sliter med å fylle Rockefeller..

Rossi har fått mye dritt slengt om seg ja. Jeg var med og intervjuet han når Quo spilte i Oslo Konserthus for noen år siden og må vel bare si at han virket som en utrolig kul og hyggelig fyr!

Taken from Bob Young's blog...
I guess many of you will have seen the recent edition of Classic Rock magazine with the
photo of the original line-up of Status Quo all together for the purpose of the documentary.
Yes they did actually get to play together in a spontaneous jam session that went on for 40
minutes. It was quite a magic moment to be in that room with Francis, Alan, Rick and John
and so good to see them all having fun together after thirty years since John left the band
and Alan a couple of years later. I always hoped, but could never be sure that it would
happen. I know it will have made a lot of the fans happy and who knows where it might
lead…. Guess we’ll have to wait and see now.

LK - hvor er du? Du må jo være passe høy over en mulig
QUO reunion?? Denne var ganske ærlig fra Parfitt:

In the latest edition of FTMO, Rhino gives his take on the reunion of the FF
that took place for the 'Hello' documentary:
"I asked Rick how the reunion at Sheppeton had gone and he said to me,
'It was really weird; as soon as we started playing - from the very first beat -
we sounded like a 70's rock band.' Which is not what we sound like any more, really."

Elsewhere, in the magazine, Parfitt says that they played the songs (in the
documentary jam session) slower as they used to, describing it as the 'natural tempo
for the FF'.

Quo, som vi kjenner dem i dag, turnerer UK nå i desember, bla.a med Eddie And The
Hot Rods og Bonnie Tyler på noen av datoene.

December
6th - Glasgow Clyde Auditorium
7th – Sheffield City Hall
9th – Bournemouth BIC*
10th - Brighton Centre*
12th – Gateshead Sage
13th – Blackpool Opera House
14th – Cardiff Motorpoint Arena
16th – Nottingham Royal Concert Hall
17th – Birmingham LG Arena
19th – London 02 Arena

Og så, er det dette....

"We are delighted to announce that Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Alan Lancaster and John Coghlan, the original
band line-up, are reforming for a one-off, never to be repeated series of UK dates in March 2013.

Status Quo manager Simon Porter said, “People have wanted this announcement to be made for years, and
here it is. This is a real moment in the chequered history of Status Quo and it comes after almost 30 years of
acrimony, and 10 years of law suits and court battles. Just 2 years ago the thought of the Frantic Four
performing again was unthinkable. Now, 50 years on from when Francis and Alan first performed together as
schoolboys, it is fitting that everything has come full circle for these unique one-off shows.

More details, including the likely contents of the set, will be announced by the band themselves at the
Classic Rock Awards on 13 November 2012.

Full dates:

MARCH 2013
Sunday 10 - Glasgow 02 Academy
Tuesday 12 - Manchester 02 Apollo
Wednesday 13 - Wolverhampton Civic
Friday 15 - London, Hammersmith Apollo
Saturday 16 - London, Hammersmith Apollo

This series of dates truly is a one off – Status Quo are now, and remain, Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt,
Andy Bown, John ‘Rhino’ Edwards and Matt Letley – so fans need to be sure that they do not miss out.

I fytti helvette!!!! 8) 8) 8) 8)

Da har jeg kjøpt fem billetter til fredag 15. mars, var innom tre runder, og det gikk
greit hver gang. Litt venting bare, og de to siste rundene sto det All Reserved, men
prøvde noen ganger til for det, og fikk tak i likevel. No stress :D

I går spilte Quo den første konserten på Frantic Four turneen. Her er en rapport,
skrevet av Simon N, medlem av iorr.org:

Hello,

I vaguely recall seeing the modern-day Quo almost 20 years ago and the fact that that was the only time
that I saw them tells you all you need to know about how I felt about that version of the band.
However, even a casual 'greatest hits merchant' like me knows that they were a bit more special back in
their early 70's incarnation: that was when they were a four-piece with Alan Lancaster on bass and John
Coghlan on drums, and had really found their sound. Well, that version of the band (the 'Frantic Four') is
back together for a limited run of shows and I was lucky to get a ticket to the first show of the reunited
Quo: they last played together 30 years ago!

When the curtain goes up the band look stunned by the racket that is all for them! As is always the way,
the band look smaller than you thought they would but they don't waste any time and launch into
"Junior's Wailing": in fact, the first four songs have bassist Lancaster singing. The setlist is album tracks
mainly- the kind of stuff that fans would choose. The only apparent rustiness is from drummer John
Coghlan who takes a little while too look at ease. I believe that the advances in stage gear over the last
30 years (in-ear monitors for example) haven't been absorbed easily. Fair enough...

As far as Parfitt and Rossi go, they are a bit of a surprise in that the former absolutely is relentless in
providing the rythmn: he strums like a mofo at times which gives the ponytail-less Rossi leave to play
some terrific lead stuff. Who knew?

It is obvious as the show goes on that Mr. Coghlan is feeling at home, with more 'deliberate' fills and
the odd smile and laugh with his band-mates. Rossi had said that they had rehearsed for 5 weeks or
so and had gotten rid of most of the @#$%&-ups but then they decided to put them all back in again
because that's how they sounded way back when!

As it happens, the first mistake came after an intro and everyone turned to look at the drum-riser.
However Rossi then realised, "Oh shit, the *drummer* is right...I hate it when that happens...trust
me to make the first mistake, hah-hah!", and after a guffaw we are off and running again.

The 90 minutes-plus encore flew by and then it was the final bow and the Frantic Four shuffled off,
leaving a baying and ecstatic audience. Job done!

1.Junior's Wailing
2.Backwater / Just Take Me
3.Is There a Better Way
4.In My Chair
5.Blue Eyed Lady
6.Little Lady / Most of the Time
7.April, Spring, Summer and Wednesdays
8.Railroad
9.Oh Baby
10.Forty-five Hundred Times / Rain
11.Big Fat Mama
12.Down Down
13.Roadhouse Blues

Encore:

14.Don't Waste My Time
15.Bye Bye Johnny
