Status Quo have been one of the UK’s finest rock ‘n’ roll exports for over 50 years. Starting life as a psychedelic rock band, and famed for their beloved single Pictures of Matchstick Men, they would go on to be one of the biggest boogie rock bands in the world. To this day, Rockin’ All Over The World still brings back memories of the band opening Live Aid in 1985 with a staggering performance.
