Status Quo is one of Britain’s most enduring and loved bands, staying together for over 40 years. After initial success with ‘Pictures Of Matchstick Men’ the band struggled to make an impact and they abandoned psychedelia for heavy boogie rock in the early ’70s. Throughout the 1970s, each album Status Quo released went into the Top Five, while their consistently hit the Top Ten and frequently went gold. Since they were experiencing a great deal of success, they didn’t change their sound at all, keeping faith with the same heavy boogie. By the mid-’90s, Status Quo had scored 50 British hit singles, which was a greater number than any other band in rock & roll’s history.
