John Coghlan's Quo: featuring John Coghlan - The Heartbeat of Quo
Original Quo drummer John Coghlan with his great band bring you a night of vintage Quo from the period he performed with Quo 1969 – 1980

*Pictures Of Matchstick Men * Ice In the Sun * Down The Dustpipe * In My Chair * Paper Plane * Mean Girl * Caroline * Break The Rules * Down Down * Roll Over Lay Down * Rain * Mystery Song * Wild Side Of Life * Rocking All Over The World * Again And Again * Whatever You Want * Living On An Island * What Your Proposing *

John Coghlan joined Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in their newly-formed band ‘The Spectres’ in 1962. The group went through a series of name changes, including Traffic Jam, before becoming Status Quo in the late 60s when Rick Parfitt also joined the line-up. In the years that followed, a string of chart-topping albums and an almost endless stream of hits included Pictures of Matchstick Men; In My Chair; Paper Plane; Caroline; Down Down; Rain; Wild Side Of Life; Rockin' All over the World, and many more. For Quo fans and critics alike, this time is often regarded as Quo’s "Classic" period.

Since leaving Quo John has worked with many noted and diverse musicians, in his own Diesel Band; with Partners In Crime; and the ‘Rockers’ featuring Phil Lynott, Roy Wood and Chas Hodges. Other collaborations have included Noel Redding (ex-Jimi Hendrix) and Eric Bell (ex-Thin Lizzy).

In 2013 and 2014, John rejoined Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt and Alan Lancaster for the two sell-out Status Quo Frantic Four Reunion Tours, selling out all over the UK and Europe and reigniting the excitement of the early days of Quo.

John Coghlan’s Quo has enjoyed regular gigs all over the UK and Europe recreating an authentic "70’s Quo Sound" in keeping with John’s time with Quo. Aside from John on Drums, the band features long-term member Mick Hughes on Guitar & Vocals, Rick Chase on Bass Guitar & Vocals and completing the line-up Rick Abbs on Guitar & Vocals.
A typical John Coghlan’s Quo show will always include evergreen ‘classic’ Quo standards but in addition the Set List will often feature rare songs not heard for many years or even on occasion, never before.
One thing you will enjoy is a great night of Quo music as it should be.

Quote from Mark Taylor, MetalTalk.net:

'John Coghlan's Quo take you on a joyous journey of his golden past in one of the most celebrated and much loved rock bands the UK has ever produced. A night of beer-raising, feelgood factor Status Quo classics'

Gary created BURNT OUT WRECK in the summer of 2016. After penning songs for an album, he ventured into the studio under the watchful eye of Steve Rispin (Asia), and with Gary’s determination to create good time classic rock, ‘SWALLOW’ began to take shape.

Whilst in the studio, people were already talking about the new project and within a week Gary had signed to TRHRC via Cherry Red and Eddy Levy at Chelsea Music Publishing Company. At Chelsea, he joins a roster that includes Tony Iommi, Art Garfunkel, Jeff Beck etc, and both deals are worldwide.

Gary has a colourful history as the drummer and main songwriter for Heavy Pettin’. The band were signed to Polydor and Warner Chappell in 1983 with help from Def Leppard’s manager Peter Mensch. They toured extensively until 1988 with Kiss, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Ratt, Motley Crue, Saxon, Accept and Magnum amongst others, as well as headlining their own tours.

They recorded three albums with different producers: Brian May on ‘Lettin’ Loose’ in 1983, Mark Dearnley on ‘Rock Ain’t Dead’ in 1985, and Adrian Lee/Tony Taverner on ‘The Big Bang’ in 1989 on FM Records. They also played the likes of Reading Festival, Loreley and other major festivals, as well as recording The Friday Rock Show for Tommy Vance & Tony Wilson.

For BURNT OUT WRECK, Gary has traded the drum stool for the microphone and has handed the drumming chair to beater Paul Gray. Adrian Dunn has been Gary’s partner in guitar crime since 1991 and was the obvious choice to be the lead guitarist. GARY headed over the wall to the land of the kilt to recruit Alex Carmichael on bass. Alex is from Eighties band La Paz, and finally Miles Goodman, long-time friend of Gary and Adrian joined as rhythm guitarist.

GARY has his own imitable style. He is compared frequently to Bon Scott and Marc Storace and he accepts this as a compliment, his vocal style developed in Mother’s Ruin, the band that rose from the ashes of Heavy Pettin’ in 1991. There followed a few years’ hiatus until 2011 when Mother’s Ruin supported Duff McKagan, played HRH Ibiza and the Bulldog Bash, all to great reviews & press interest. In 2014, he shut the the whole operation down in favour of song writing, BURNT OUT WRECK’S inception was unexpected but welcome! ROCK AINT DEAD….
