Overview

They’ve had more UK hits than the Beatles, the Stones, the Who and the Kinks. They’ve sold more albums than the entire current Top 40 combined. They’ve been together for over 40 years and have a worldwide discography that’s approximately twice the size of Connecticut. They are Status Quo and, as much as any of the handful of other bands that can rightly be termed a rock institution, they have maintained both a musical integrity and a commercial viability that defies any attempt to downplay their importance.

Written by award winning rock author Dave Thompson, "Status Quo - the Ultimate Listening Guide 1967-2011" is an exhaustive album by album account of the Quo, as they drove from picturesque matchstickery at the end of the 1960s, to a stately quid pro quo in at the dawn of the Twenteens.

Exclusive commentary from Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt, Quo's eternal mainmen, adds revealing background to the story, while Thompson's balanced eye for detail combines with his lifelong love of Quo to tell a musical story that is second to none.
