A small part of my world disappeared today with the sad news that Rick Parfitt of the rock band Status Quo had died.
Quo were one of the sound tracks of a young Dookes’ youth. Their simple twelve bar blues rhythm rock songs demanded nothing other than you just got up and banged your head to the beat. It was all a teenage lad needed, especially when the girls were in short supply!
Rick, thank you for the music and the memories…rock on my denim clad friend. I’ll miss you.
“When I’m thinking of you sleeping
I’m at home alone and weeping.”
Catch you soon.
