John Coghlan's Quo: featuring John Coghlan - The Heartbeat of Quo

Original Quo drummer John Coghlan, with his great band, brings you a night of vintage Quo from the period he performed with Status Quo 1962 - 1981.

John Coghlan joined Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in their newly-formed band ‘The Spectres’ in 1962. The group went through a series of name changes, including Traffic Jam, before becoming Status Quo in the late 60s when Rick Parfitt also joined the line-up. In the years that followed, a string of chart-topping hits include: ‘Pictures Of Matchstick Men’ ‘ Down Down’ ‘Rocking All Over The World’ and ‘Again And Again’.

Since leaving Quo, John been part of some high-profile musical collaborations, in his own Diesel Band; with Partners In Crime; and the ‘Rockers’ featuring Phil Lynott, Roy Wood and Chas Hodges.

In 2013 and 2014, John re-joined Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt and Alan Lancaster for the two sell-out Status Quo Frantic Four Reunion Tours, appearing all over the UK and Europe and reigniting the excitement of the early days of Quo.

John Coghlan’s Quo formed in the late 90s with the aim of recreating that “authentic 70s Quo sound”, which the current line-up with John on drums, with Mick Hughes guitar and vocals, Rick Chase bass and vocals and Rick Abbs guitar and vocals, more than achieves.

“John Coghlan's Quo take you on a joyous journey of his golden past in one of the most celebrated and much-loved rock bands the UK has ever produced. A night of beer-raising, feelgood factor Status Quo classics.” MetalTalk.net critic Mark Taylor
