Whats On

John Coghlan's Quo

Saturday, 12 August 2017 - 8:00pm
 
John Coghlan joined Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in their newly-formed band ‘The Spectres’ in 1962. The group went through a series of name changes, including Traffic Jam, before becoming Status Quo in the late 60s when Rick Parfitt also joined the lineup.
 
In the years that followed, a string of chart-topping albums and an almost endless stream of hits included Pictures of Matchstick Men; In My Chair; Paper Plane; Caroline; Down Down; Rain; Wild Side of Life; Rockin' All Over The World, and many more.
 
For Quo fans and critics alike, this time is often regarded as Quo’s ‘Classic’ period. Since leaving Quo John has worked with many noted and diverse musicians, in his own Diesel Band; with Partners In Crime; and the ‘Rockers’ featuring Phil Lynott, Roy Wood and Chas Hodges. Other collaborations have included Noel Redding (ex-Jimi Hendrix) and Eric Bell (ex-Thin Lizzy).
 
In 2013 and 2014, John rejoined Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt and Alan Lancaster for the two sell-out Status Quo Frantic Four Reunion Tours, selling out all over the UK and Europe and reigniting the excitement of the early days of Quo.
 
Status Quo have provided the soundtrack for a generation of rock music fans as well as influencing so many acts that have followed them over the years. Good-time rock ’n’ roll boogie blues featuring a succession of hit records from a magical musical period. 
 
 
During the late 90s John Coghlan’s Quo formed and have enjoyed regular gigs all over the UK and Europe. The current band (previously performing as The John Coghlan Band) consists of John on Drums with Mick Hughes from NWOBHM Boogie Band ‘Predatür’ on guitar, Rick Chase on bass and vocals and Rick Abbs on guitar and vocals completing the line-up.
 
John Coghlan's Quo - The prime aim is to recreate an authentic “70s Quo Sound” in keeping with John’s time with Quo. 
 
Quote from MetalTalk.net critic, Mark Taylor;
John Coghlan's Quo take you on a joyous journey of his golden past in one of the most celebrated and much loved rock bands the UK has ever produced. A night of beer-raising, feel-good factor Status Quo classics.”
 
For one night only John Coghlan’s Quo will be performing live at The Continental on Saturday 12th August.
