On Wednesday 3 August 2011 I hosted Status Quo’s “Rockin’ the Dock” concert at Cowes Yacht Haven. Backstage before the gig we talked all kinds of music and of course I couldn’t resist letting front-men Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi know that the Quo’s Bubblegum and Cheese top 3 would be:
Status Quo: Bubblegum & Cheese Top 3…
3. Marguerita Time
2. Ice in the Sun
1. Pictures of Matchstick Men
… with their version of Dion’s The Wanderer just missing out on the countdown.
Francis Rossi told me when he guested on my radio show that they’re really excited by the idea of a Quo stage musical, so watch this space!
