Brian is billed to be on “Hello Quo” this coming Saturday evening 9 November BBC2 at 9PM
Radio Times review by:
“I only know three chords. They’re all you need.” Status Quo aren’t deep, but when you hear chug-along classics like Matchstick Men and Whatever You Want, it’s hard not to have a good time. They’re like an auntie dragging you onto the dancefloor.
In this exhaustive profile, the band come across as likeable likely lads, recalling the ups and downs of their career with self-deprecating humour. If it finished with the opening of Live Aid, when they sang Rocking All Over The World to a global audience, you would leave with a smile.
Unfortunately, the story detours into bitter fall-outs and a series of marketing stunts that would make Spinal Tap blush. The same up-for-anythingness that made them successful now looks a bit desperate. BBC2’s night of Quo continues with classic performances on TOTP2.
