Well, I think so, due to what has gone on in the past and what will continue to go on, mark my words. All because of an extremely ruthless and spiteful management, not to mention completely clueless lapdog band members.
Why, in particular, have a large percentage of recordings featuring Rick on lead vocals for Aquostic II been demoted to the deluxe and vinyl versions?
Why did Rick's image continue to be used to promote LNOTE after it was unclear that he would be back?
I say that it is not just a coincidence both of these things happened but because it was known that Rick wouldn't be back, but they continued to use his image to sell as many tickets as possible because they knew the tour wouldn't sell as well without him.
The rest of Quo pretending that Rick is replaceable by continuing to perform his songs, and Rhino most of all with his comments deliberately intended to contradict has been shameful.
You KNOW that do you....have you talked to Rick or Porter or a promoter or god forbid Rossi?
WHEN did we know Rick wouldn't be back - Rick is the type who would be saying "I'll be right" until the last minute. Maybe Rick said "I can't" but management said wait and see....saying it was all done on purpose is a bit far fetched.
HOW do you review promotion posters, photos etc overnight - there has been six months planning and publicity.
As someone else said, at this stage this is nothing but Quo filling planned engagements for promoters, fans and employees. Anything else suggested here is pure speculation.
Next year we will have a much clearer idea of the band's future.
