Status Quo's Rick Parfitt Sad About Missing Final Electric Shows

Status Quo

(Classic Rock) Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt has released a handwritten message to fans, saying much he's missing the band's final electric shows. The veteran musician suffered a serious heart attack on the road in June and his management later revealed he'd "died for several minutes" during the incident.

He's expected to make a full recovery, although the statement said it was possible he'd "performed his last show" with the band. Quo confirmed earlier this year that their current tour would be their last full-power trip, although they didn't rule out further acoustic outings.

Parfitt, 67, says in his note: "Here I am sitting in a hotel in Malaga. Just thought I'd drop you a little line to say how much I miss being part of the last year of rockin.'

"But I must fully recover from the latest blip with my heart - and with what's left of it, I wish you all a Happy Christmas." Read more here.
