Rick Parfitt Rules Out Return To Status Quo

Status Quo

(Classic Rock) Rick Parfitt says he won't return to performing with Status Quo in any capacity. The veteran guitarist suffered a serious heart attack on the road in June and his management later revealed he'd "died for several minutes" during the incident.

While he is expected to make a full recovery, he won't play any part in the band's current run of farewell electric shows and he now reveals he won't return to Quo in any performing capacity - although he remains involved in Quo's business activities. He has been replaced by Richie Malone and after the tour ends on December 23, Quo will only perform acoustic shows in the future.

Parfitt tells Classic Rock's Dave Ling that he won't go to any of the electric shows and that he has no interest in being a part of any future acoustic gigs. On whether he will attend the electric shows, Parfitt says: "That wouldn't be a good move. Some fans would think, 'If you're well enough to be here then you're well enough to play.'

"Plus, standing there in the audience… no, I don't think I could do that, but I do wish Richie Malone all the best. He's a f***ing good little player and it must be all of his dreams come true." Read more here.
