    Default Rick Parfitt 1948 - 2016

    Another one has been taken RIP rick.....

    Official Facebook statement from Quo:

    Statement from The Parfitt Family & Status Quo Manager, Simon Porter.

    We are truly devastated to have to announce that Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt has passed away at lunchtime today.
    He died in hospital in Marbella, Spain as a result of a severe infection, having been admitted to hospital on Thursday evening following complications to a shoulder injury incurred by a previous fall.
    This tragic news comes at a time when Rick was hugely looking forward to launching a solo career with an album and autobiography planned for 2017 following his departure from Status Quo’s touring activities on medical advice.
    He will be sorely missed by his family, friends, fellow band members, management, crew and his dedicated legion of fans from throughout the world, gained through 50 years of monumental success with Status Quo.
    Rick is survived by his wife Lyndsay, their twins Tommy and Lily and Rick’s adult children Rick Jnr and Harry.
    No further comment will be made at this time and Rick's family, and the band, ask for their privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

    RIP Rick,
    Another from my childhood gone.
    This year I fear' is going to go down in history for all the wrong reasons.

    Back in '87 my first six string electric was a blonde Telecaster purely due to these guys.

    Massive respect.

    As noted, this year is becoming a disaster area.

    I have always thought it a shame that Quo have been so roundly mocked. OK the music is not exactly the deepest, intellectually demanding stuff I've ever heard but it's a whole load of fun. Because even I can play the chords - all two of them - it's great to join in too.

    Strange he should die of an infection, after all his heart attacks, I assumed it would be that again. Sad. RIP.
