Not a fan in general, liked "In the Army Now", but that was about it.

So what if some bands only use three chords, as long as they make some great songs, does it really matter.

Really liked 'Rock 'n' Roll'. I once bought their greatest hits CD just for that track, although there are plenty of others on there that I've listened to.

The only Quo I'd listen to is Pictures Of Matchstick Men - an accidental psychedelic classic.

Their der-der-der-der der-der-der-der stuff is dull, dull, dull.

And they look like gents hairdressers from Kettering.

Funny thing is, I tried to tamper with a Quo track in Tracktion and no matter what I did it still sounded the same. Maybe their music has some kind of mundane forcefield protecting it from improvement? ???

...i like the idea of Quo, doing what they want to amuse themselves and their fans but just not my cup of tea...anyway, we have Oasis now which is pretty much the same thing...pub rock
