Status Quo is one of England's longest running rock acts, staying together and playing for over thirty years. The band began as The Spectres while they were still in school in the early sixties and by 1970 they were playing the heavy metal boogie that made them famous. Status Quo had a string of top ten hits in England including Caroline, Rockin' All Over the World and Whatever You Want.

Over the years Status Quo stuck with the status quo, never diverging from their brand of psychedelic heavy metal. Although they never hit it big in the United States, British fans have remained loyal to the band throughout the years. There have been many personnel in the three decades since Status Quo started out but the music has been consistent. The band promises more of the three chord riffs that got them where they are and from the way things look, Status Quo could be around for another thirty years.
