I confess I had that feeling too. He usually plays a bit more sturdy and floats the tempo here and there. This sounds a bit like a drum machine. Always the same fills. And when the crashes hits, the hats keep going. Which is not typical of John (I actually play like that, depending on the songs I'm playing, but it's not typical of drummers to do that). In some parts, it's snare+hats+crash all at the same time, which would mean three hands, in the most common scenario.
Really enjoyed that. It was like going back to the 70s when a Radio 1 dj would say "we have a brand new track from the forthcoming Status Quo album". I wonder where they got the inspiration from, to write the song!!
A little thing again from er,,,,from the 'allo album, I say 'allo, 'cause I don't speak er,,,atall well, from the Hello album, a thing called, ROLL OVER LAY DOWN. (Rossi. Southend, Kursaal: 01/03/75)
The main riff is a bit reminiscent of Cut Me Some Slack but it's a very good track. Certainly the best 'lockdown' song I've heard by quite a bit. All of the rest have been self-indulgent, self-praising bollox. In the main.
Old Skool Quo. Can never get enough of that sort of thing personally
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.
