Lyric video for Rick Parfitt solo track Long Distance Love is released - taken from the late guitarist’s album Over And Out. The song will appear on the late guitarist’s posthumous album Over And Out, which will be released on March 23 via earMUSIC. The Quo guitarist died on Christmas Eve 2016, with Parfitt recording parts of the album while he was recuperating from a heart attack he suffered in July that year. Some of the songs remained unfinished, with his son Rick Parfitt Jnr, John ‘Rhino’ Edwards, Alan Lancaster, Queen’s Brian May and Muse’s Chris Wolstenholme stepping in to ensure the album could be completed.
Wolstenholme replicates one of Parfitt's guitar lines on Long Distance Love and says: "Take it from me, it was harder than anyone would imagine. Rick’s strength as a player was his immediately recognisable style – very staccato, like his left hand was constantly bouncing off the strings.","It’s very hard to do, and I’ve never seen anyone else do it quite like him. But then, there never was anyone quite like Rick."
Over And Out is described as a true labour of love and showcases the softer side of Rick as a writer, artist and performer away from the Quo maelstrom as well as the purest rock and roll sound of earlier Status Quo records.
That's a quality song, typical of John David and probably would have been a big hit for Quo back in the late 80's/early 90's. Personally it's great to hear Rick and he must have worked hard in the months after leaving Quo to get so far with the album. Total and utter respect!!!
juansupposin: 21st September 91 at Wembley, the 45 min Guinness concert, probably not the best concert to start, only 45 min, I remeber thinking they will play longer because it was the last concert

backwater67: Paul Hirch filled in for Quo when Andy’s wife was unable to tour. Aquostic was a complete different project for Quo. I was referring to a standard regular live gig on stage with session guitarists. Jagger does still take the lead vocal.
