    TOP MONEYSAVING TIP

    Make your own Pot Noodles using a flower pot, sawdust and some old shoe laces. Pour in boiling water, stir then allow to stand for two minutes before taking one mouthful, and throwing away. Just like the real thing!

    Never missed them in over 30yrs. I will be buying mine for this year.



    STATUS QUO'S total world-wide record sales exceed 118 million units.

    QUO have recorded 63 British hit singles - more than any other band - 22 of which have hit the Top Ten.

    QUO have had more hit albums (32) in the British Albums Chart than any other band apart from The Rolling Stones.

    In their 39 year history, it is estimated that QUO have played over 6000 live shows to a total audience in excess of 25 million people. In doing so, the band has travelled some four million miles and spent 23 years away from home.

    QUO now hold the record for more hit singles than any other band, both international and British, in UK chart history, in November 2005 they were presented with certificates commemorating this milestone by the Guinness British Book of Hit Singles & Albums.

    Just a few facts about the Quo for the comedians on here.

    I know my parents went to see them at the motor show at Olympia last year and they said they were brilliant. Not my cup of tea, I only know some of their songs but they never fail to get me going lol

    I had the misfortune to see them at Cambridge Corn Exchange a couple of weeks ago. The voices have gone, the sound was awful, and the overall experience was one to be missed. I wouldn't recommend them.

    I love Quo, but we've spent our allocation on Rick Wakeman in May. Can't wait!
    What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare

    How can you tell? I've seen them live several times over the years including in the mid 70's at Bracknell Sports Centre and supporting Queen at Knebworth in 1986, and they were consistent, if nothing else. This time round, they were definitely showing thier age. It was a very poor show by their standards. The missus paid for the tickets. I told her I wouldn't see them again even if she paid. :confused:
