R.I.P. Status Quo’s Rick Parfitt

“We grew up on STATUS QUO as kids & have a great respect for them & their legacy … I hung out with Rick P in the mid 80s, he showed me the rudimentary scales on the piano which I still refer back to even now .. we almost wrote a great song together , sadly it remains & will remain unfinished … a truly genuine & funny guy … RIP Rick.
