Wednesday, September 10, 2014

In episode 45 of One On One with Mitch Lafon, FRANCIS ROSSI of STATUS QUO joins Mitch as well as co-hosts Mark Strigl (from Talking Metal) and the KILLER DWARFS’ Russ Dwarf.

In this episode’s only interview, Mitch had a lengthy chat with legendary Status Quo guitarist, Francis Rossi. The topics were varied as Francis discussed the band’s uncertain future, long time band mate RICK PARFITT’s health (and administers a little tough love), his feelings about former members John Coghlan and Alan Lancaster, the band’s new ‘The Frantic Four’s Final Fling - Live At The Dublin O2 Arena’, his true enthusiasm for another upcoming release ‘Aquostic – Stripped Bare’, why the band failed to catch on in North America, the reunion tour and other band line-ups, why bother recording new music, his favorite Status Quo album and which one he believes missed the mark, and so much more.
