Legendary English rock band Status Quo are the latest act to have their own dedicated station on Exclusive Radio.
The band formed in 1962 in London as The Scorpions and was founded by Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster while they were still schoolboys. After a number of line-up changes, which included the introduction of Rick Parfitt in 1967, the band became The Status Quo in 1967 and Status Quo in 1969.
They have had over 60 chart hits in the UK, more than any other rock band, including Down Down, Whatever You Want and In The Army Now. 22 of these reached the Top 10 in the UK Singles Chart and 57 reached the Top 40.
In July 1985 the band opened Live Aid at Wembley Stadium with Rockin’ All Over The World and in 1991 Quo received a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.
Status Quo appeared on the BBC’s Top of the Pops more than any other band. They have released over 100 singles and 33 albums, many of which were best-sellers. Since reaching number 5 on the UK albums chart in 1972 with Piledriver, Status Quo have achieved a career total of 25 UK top ten albums, extending all the way up to their most recent release, Backbone in 2019.
