Rossi rules out retirement
Status Quo frontman Francis Rossi has insisted that he has no plans to retire, despite recently turning 60.
Speaking to BBC News, Rossi said he believes rock music is still as valid today as it was in the mid-60s, despite the fact that people of his parents' generation belittled this style and said it would not endure.
"Everybody at the time was laughing at the Stones and the Beatles, saying it's not going to last - and it did," Rossi commented.
He added that he intends to carry on blasting out hits such as Caroline, Down Down and Rockin' All Over the World on his electric guitar for some time to come.
The band is currently gearing up to perform a slot at the Glastonbury Festival in Somerset this weekend, while an extensive UK tour is set to commence later in the year.Posted on 24 Jun 2009 11:53 to category : Band / Celebrity News
