Status Quo - Backbone

When Rick Parfitt died on 24th December 2016, I didn't think I'd ever want to see a Status Quo without him there. Afterall, he literally was the backbone of Quo, his rhythm sound was the signature.

However, I've given their new album Backbone a few spins and I am pretty impressed. It's quite bluesy-esque and Francis Vocals sound good - he's 70!!

Bassist Rhino gets to sing a little and Richie gets a lead vocal on Get Out Of My Head
Richie Malone who was chosen by Rick before he died to take the reigns when he was ill (and Malone has been a Rick fan since he was a kid).

Great album and worth a listen, does take a few spins and the production could've done with a bit more meat, but I am enjoying it.
