John Coghlan's Quo: John Coghlan
"John Coghlan’s Quo - biog
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.
During the late nineties John Coghlan’s Quo was formed and through various line-ups has enjoyed regular gigs all over the UK and Europe. The current band consists of John on drums, with Mick Hughes from NWOBHM Boogie Band ‘Predatür’, Rick Chase on bass and vocals, and Rick Abbs on guitar and vocals completing the line-up.
John Coghlan's Quo - The prime aim is to recreate an authentic “70’s Quo Sound” in keeping with John’s time with Quo. For Quo fans and critics alike, this time is often regarded as Quo’s “Classic” period.
Quote from MetalTalk.net critic, Mark Taylor
'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'"
Info provided by the Event Organiser
John was the drummer with Status Quo for over a decade. John Coghlan joined Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in their newly-formed band in 1962. By 1983, having left Status Quo, John decided it was time to put together new bands Diesel and Stranger, before eventually forming John Coghlan's Quo during the late 1990s. The band has since toured Europe and the UK successfully for several years with various line-ups. The current band since 2010 (previously performing as The John Coghlan Band) consists of John on Drums with Baz Barry, Mick Hughes and Pete Knight from NWOBHM Boogie Band ‘Predatür’ completing the line-up. The band performs many of the Status Quo hits and favourites from the Coghlan years 1962 - 1981.
