I kind of understand the urge to move-on something that used to be important to you decades ago. Downsizing, and all that.
But Rossi isn't superstitious, is he?
It's never going to tour again, what will the family do with it, hang it on the wall like "grandpa's medals"? It's a bit big for that. Better to convert it into cash and hope there's a buyer who will maybe display it somewhere so that people can take selfies with it, like the Mona Lisa.
(It seems like that is the measure of a famous work of art now.)
I felt v sad seeing and reading that. Then on reflection, I kind of understand. I'm nowhere near as old as Francis, but I'm wanting to rid myself of things I don't use these days, that I've hung on to for decades. Clearly of no interest to him or his family, so its going... Though shame it is all about the money these days.
Francis is consolidating his wealth at the right time in his life as he can't go on for ever. The book tour and Backbone plus the band tour scheduled for next year are keeping him in the public eye. However, his long term fans are also ageing. Now is probably the most opportune time to sell as I doubt the green tele will increase much in value in the future. His family is important to him and I reckon he wants to leave them as much security as possible.
Absolutely his right to do what he wants with a battered unplayable Guitar that he owns. If he makes £100,000 then good on him. Some people overplay the significance of it ! It’s not a Hendrix Strat or a Beatles Rickenbacker for god sake. It’s just Quo !

I always believe that Francis has the right to do what he wants....but wouldn't it be great if the green and white teles were displayed somewhere together though, now neither of them are being used! Don't know where, but somewhere people could see them. They're important to Quo fans and interesting to other music fans. They are part of rock music history.
backwater67: Looks like fretbuzzzz has based his sales on BPI sales awards. Back in the 1970s & 80s silver sales were based on minimum 250,000 units sold. (Today silver sales are awarded for 200,000 units)

granny: But @4th Chord regarding your new rule...if the man running the country (Dominic Cummings) can weave a fairy tale around known facts why can't we be just as creative?

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.
