Status Quo's Parfitt and Rossi Regret Marrying Young

(Classic Rock) Status Quo mainmen Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi both say they regret marrying as young as they did and neither of them blame their ex-wives for getting divorced.

The pair are gearing up for their final Frantic Four shows alongside classic lineup colleagues Alan Lancaster and John Coughlan. And they've just confirmed a UK tour with the contemporary Quo.

Parfitt tells the Express: "I got married too early, when I was 23. The band was just starting to get big and the drugs were creeping in. My wife just couldn't put up with me - and I don't blame her. I was coming home at four or five in the morning, out of my tree."

Rossi recalls: "I went off to follow my dream. I didn't ask my wife if it was her dream." He adds: "Alcohol and peer pressure led me to cocaine. I have an addictive nature and I was doing it all the time for seven or eight years. I didn't like it in the end." more on this story
