Often derided but at the peak a great rock n rol band Status Quo’s classic line up have been reunited for a documentary to be released this year.

The band whose late sixties hits are great psychedelic songs before they switched to the Doors ‘Roadhouse Blues’ riff for a series of great twin Telecaster boogie anthems in the seventies have a long and twisting tale to tell.

About ”˜Hello Quo’ The Movie:

With 128 million worldwide album sales already under their collective belts, two OBE awards, a million neon lit ”˜Sold Out’ signs, a record 108 appearances on Top of the Pops, this will never be beaten or even equalled! You’d think that HRH Prince Charles favourite band had nothing more to prove in the field of entertainment”¦ But, they’ve NEVER in all their long and glorious history been seen on a cinema screen”¦

In October 2012 however all that is about to change when Emmy nominated Director Alan G Parker presents his latest movie ”˜Hello Quo!’

Despite previous long form documentaries that have been about them the original Quo, Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Alan Lancaster & John Coghlan, known by fans as ”˜The Frantic Four’ have never all taken part, not only will they be interviewed in depth this time around, but they will also play live together for the first time in over 25 years! Just for our cameras”¦

Other interviewees include: Brian May (Queen), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Paul Weller (The Jam), Sir Cliff Richard, Noddy Holder & Jim Lea (Slade), Scott Gorham & Ricky Warwick (Thin Lizzy), John ”˜Rhino’ Edwards, Andy Bown, Matt Letley & Jeff Rich (Status Quo), Andy Scott & Steve Priest (The Sweet), Chris Tarrent (TV presenter), Midge Ure (Live Aid), Jeff Lynne (ELO), Ginger (The Wildhearts), Steve Diggle (Buzzcocks), The Feeling and for the first time in 40+ years The Harrison Twins (who first appeared as part of ”˜The Highlights’ at Butlins with Rick Parfitt in 1962).

The documentary will run to just over 2 hours in it’s full cinema release format and be presented in 3D to the big screen only”¦ A DVD/Blu-ray and TV cut-down will appear in standard 2D format. This is the final word on Quo”¦

Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Alan G Parker & Alexa Morris are already committed to a number of Q&A sessions in big UK cities upon release.

  1. Quote: But, they\’ve NEVER in all their long and glorious history been seen on a cinema screen…

    Fact: Apart from 1974 when a mini film of Quo live at Wembley was shown in cinemas prior to Rory Gallagher’s Irish Tour ’74 film.

  2. Oh man I’ve a very big fan of Status Quo since 1972 jesus this movie going to be HUGH & in 3D Fuck yeah bring it on

  3. Been a quo fan since the quo tour back in the 1970s it will be great to see the frantic four back together on the big screen ,rock on !

  4. I think there is little doubt that this is one of the most terrific video games of all time. There is action and comedy which makes it so wonderful. It is a little long, but it’s still worth playing in one sitting. Anyone know the best place to buy games?

  5. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
