Status Quo Bibliography
Status Quo are an English rock band whose music is characterized by their distinctive brand of rock. They were formed in 1962 under the name "The Scorpions" by Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster at Sedgehill Comprehensive School, Catford, along with classmates Alan Key (drums) and Jess Jaworski (keyboards).
Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster played their first gig at the Samuel Jones Sports Club in Dulwich, London. In 1963, Alan Key was replaced by John Coghlan and the band changed name to "The Spectres". They began writing their own material and after a year, met Rick Parfitt who was playing with a cabaret band called The Highlights. By the end of 1965, Rossi and Parfitt, who had become close friends, made a commitment to continue working together.
On 18 July 1966, The Spectres signed a five-year deal with Piccadilly Records, releasing two singles that year, "I (Who Have Nothing)" and "Hurdy Gurdy Man" (written by Alan Lancaster), and one the next year called "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet" All three singles failed to make an impact on the charts. By 1967, the group had discovered psychedelia and named themselves Traffic, but were soon forced to change it to "Traffic Jam" to avoid confusion with Steve Winwood's Traffic, following an argument over who had registered the name first.
The band, with newly-joined organist Roy Lynes, secured an appearance on BBC Radio's Saturday Club, but their next single, "Almost But Not Quite There", underperformed. After a number of lineup changes, the band became The Status Quo in 1967 and Status Quo in 1969. In January 1968 the band released the psychedelic "Pictures of Matchstick Men"Rick Parfitt was invited to join the band just as the single hit the Uk charts reaching No,7.
The rest is history as they say. They have had over 60 chart hits in the UK, starting with 1967's "Pictures of Matchstick Men", and the most recent being in 2010, which is more than any other rock group. Twenty-two of these reached the Top 10 in the Uk Singles Chart. In 1991, Status Quo received a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.
