Q. If you could pick one Quo album to play live in its entirety, what one would you choose? A. I wouldn't
Q. Francis, first, thankyou for yout music over the past 50 years. I got hooked after I heard "Is it really me / gotta go home". Why do you think Quo are still so popular after all this time ? A. Popular? If this is so, i have no idea.
Q. When you practice, what exactly do you play - scales, locks, arpeggios? A. Yes.
Sorry Cammy but ffs That's not an excuse That makes it even worse. If you are answering questions via email, that means you have all the time in the world to write two, three sentences, paragraphs, pages etc. Let's face it, he and the rest of the band are not exactly rushed off their feet given the current pandemic. Essentially, you can expand on your answers, no matter what method or device you choose how to answer. He decided not to elaborate.
Whatever way you want to take that, is up to the individual. Although, I must admit, the way he answered the guitar question reeks of dickheadism! That could have been a kid or someone trying to absorb as much information as possible about learning how to play the guitar, from someone that inspires them...
Haven't read it yet. However, I have noticed in the past that the answers Francis gives can be very short. Almost to the point of rudeness. Some of the narrative in his recent book is like that as well.
I mentioned it to Yvonne a year or so back and she did confirm that these interviews are done via e-mail. I can't remember what else she said but you don't $hit on your own doorstep
Both the Rhino and Andy issues in particular were excellent. As good a read as the FTMO has ever been. It looks like this one will take 3½ minutes. Before my coffee even gets cold

....... does he use a computer/laptop, or just email on a phone? If its the latter, a 70-something doing emails via phone, being asked the same old questions, isn't ever going to get a lengthy reply.
The questions quoted above aren't exactly imaginative; The one about playing an entire album live a) Quo aren't known for big theatrical albums like The Who or Pink Floyd; they're for the hits, he's used the phrase 'insecure little show off' many times so will always go for the hits to be liked. A full recital of a Quo album will always be very niche / fan interest only rather than those out for a night out before xmas. b) if he wanted to, he could've done so already!
The one about practice - scales, locks, arpeggios... again we know he took an interviewer to task a few years ago when they mentioned "3 chords" and asked her "what is a chord"... he clearly finds music terminology talk either boring or out of his depth, so why ask..........
Francis has had a more arduous schedule of late than the others, with his "I talk too much tour". Every day I see pictures of him posted by fans on Facebook, all thrilled to have met him at the Meet and Greet sessions and all appreciative of their interaction with him. He comments on their guitars, their lives, their tastes in music and answers their questions with good grace. Perhaps more imaginative questioning by FTMO would have received less terse answers.

uwe: This has probably been over-analyzed here before, but I only stumbled across it now. We all know how Francis' and Rick's harmony lead vocals sounded, but Francis and Alan?
