Noisy Status Quo fan could get sent down down
Paul Lloyd, a 34-year-old from Newcastle, regularly played Quo classics such as Whatever You Want, Down Down and Rockin' All Over the World in the middle of the night.
Neighbours could only take so much of Francis Rossi's Fender Telecaster playing and complained on the grounds that the loud volume of his stereo was keeping them awake.
However, Mr Lloyd proceeded to ignore council notices ordering him to turn it down and was therefore prosecuted for anti-social behaviour.
He could now face jail if he makes any noise in his flat that can be heard outside during the night.
Stephen Savage, director of public protection of Newcastle City Council, commented: "We will not tolerate any sort of behaviour which has a negative effect on other people's quality of life.
"This Asbo shows we'll take appropriate action if necessary."
