Synopsis

XS All Areas: The Status Quo Autobiography by Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt

Now they tell it all - the drug-taking, the marriage breakdowns, Parfitt's brush with death when he was forced to undergo by-pass surgery. From their early days as a sixties 'boy band' through the massive international success of the seventies to the present day, this is an explosive no-holds-barred autobiography from two of Britain's most enduring rock stars.

About the Author

Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt

Francis Rossi is the front man of Status Quo. Known to everyone in the band as 'Frame' or 'The Gomorr' (the grand old man of rock and roll). When not touring, Francis keeps fit by swimming and exercising. He is a collector of Koi Carp, likes Clay pigeon shooting and is probably the English pasta-eating record holder.

Rick Parfitt is one of Englands' greatest rhythm guitarists, his rock solid style has always been the core of the Quo sound. Also known as 'The Womorr' (The Wild Old Man Of Rock and Roll). The enduring partnership of Rossi and Parfitt is the thing that keeps Quo rocking and even though they are very different characters, after more than 30 years together they are still the best of mates. Once known as the 'Wild Man' of rock, Rick insists that he has learnt to relax and now is a 'Mild Man' of rock.
