Today we bring you part three of a four part series on music trivia to get you through your May 'Humpday's'. Today we have facts 51-75, where you'll learn why Martin made only 404 of John Mayer's signature OM-28 acoustic, the name of Fred Durst's pet dog, the first band to play behind what was once called the Iron Curtain and much more really fascinating stuff... No Really. 101 facts you never knew about music: part 3 51. Between 1948 and 1960, blues legend John Lee Hooker released over 100 singles. 52. The intro to Eddie Floyd's Knock On Wood is the same as the intro to In The Midnight Hour, but the chord progression is played backwards. Both songs were co-written by guitarist Steve Cropper. Economical work, Mr Cropper! 53. Oasis's Noel Gallagher and Status Quo's Francis Rossi share a birthday: 29 May. The creative forces of guitar boogie are strong on that day, obviously. 54. The drum machine part on the recording of New Order's Blue Monday - acknowledged as the best-selling 12-inch single of all time - ...

I kicked Francis Rossi in the nads, and belted Rick Parfitt round the back of the head. How's that for upsetting the Status Quo?
I blame Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt. Apparently people are voting for UKIP bigots because they're 'fed up with Status Quo'
I think Ed takes most umbrage with Francis Rossi. Rick Parfitt is known to write the lyrics to Cameron's bedtime lullabies.
So I share my birthday with Duke Ellington, Lonnie Donegan, Willie Nelson, Tammi Terrell & Francis Rossi. I'll settle for that!

Tell him you don't want him like Francis Rossi with a skullet!. That's what scared mine! He's now playing 12 bar blues!
Thats quite a look, keep it going, seek to start a SQ tribute band or wait for Sir Francis of Rossi to croak it and replace him..
Rossi said around 10 years ago he'd never sing matchstick men again,But the fans demanded it so tough titty Francis :-D
Catholics don’t need Monsignor Rossi &others like him telling them what he&they think Pope Francis didn’t say—the Pope’s speaks very clearly
No surprise Msgr.Rossi trying to upstage Pope Francis as he does every senior Church official before televised service @ the National Shrine
It still annoys me that Francis Rossi is acting the goat in the band aid video. I don't think he understood kids in Africa were starving
I heard it was Francis Rossi next to you not the other way round :-)
Trying to add~in a hairlin...ah! Francis Rossi of 'Status Quo', yeh?.
Francis rossi's tache and guitar sound at the start of matchstick men are equally great.
Jools Holland told me he did the Eisteddfod and what a brilliant place and atmosphere it was - Francis Rossi
If I were Bob, I'd blame all these inaccuracies on Midge Ure. Or claim that Francis Rossi altered some of the words unbidden.
Just saw francis rossi on the nations favourite laura. He sang rocking all over the world. He was In the quo. NOT CHAS AND DAVE.
We are in plymouth and were up on the *** earlier. Sam totally confused between Francis Drake and Francis Rossi - I did crack up when he asked if he was playing guitar while blowing up the spanish armada, thought Matthew or Abigail might find this funny
***QUO TO PLAY LLANGOLLEN EISTEDDFOD 2014*** Status Quo have been confirmed to headline the 2014 edition of the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in Wales. Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt and co will grace a stage previously trod by classical icons including Luciano Pavarotti, Montserrat Caballe, James Galway and the Welsh National Opera. The annual event attracts more than 5000 artists every year for competitions and performances – and although it’s closely associated with the finer end of the music spectrum, director Eilir Owen Griffiths says Quo are a perfect match. He tells the BBC: “We’ve created a festival within a festival called Llanfest, and this is a great headlining act for ending the week.
After much speculation it has been revealed that the new Pope has actually taken his name from rock star Francis Rossi. Well the church does like the Status Quo.
Mark Francis is the equivalent of them peripheral Simpsons characters like the Mexican bumblebee or the black geezer playing the saxophone
Dear Francis Rossi,. Great news, I have found your Septum. It was down the back of my sofa! I will send by recorded delivery. Merry Christmas
rebounds from loss to St. Joe's with 59-49 victory over St. Francis, writes
Story of 59-49 win over St. Francis and Rodney Williams' fine day updated with quotes & video.
St. Francis is still hanging in there with the Dragons. Drexel holding a 55-47 lead with 1:43 to play.
Score a little closer than expected partially because St. Francis is 6 for 15 from 3-point range. Came in shooting 29%.
Dragons are really looking for Rodney Williams inside. He has a good match-up against the shorter St. Francis big men.
St. Francis holding their own on the boards. 7-7 early on and not allowing offensive boards. 12-10 11:04 to go in the first.
Drexel on an 8-0 run after St. Francis scored the first four. Chris Fouch doing Fouch-y things b/c that's what Chris Fouch does.

W4 TONIGHT be a xmas *** !!! inc a party of francis rossis with guitars
Late. This Day in Music History December 15, 1984 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' by Band Aid entered the UK chart at No.1 and stayed at the top for five weeks. It became the biggest selling UK single of all time with sales over 3 and a half million. Band Aid was masterminded by former Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof, who had been moved by a TV news story of famine in Ethiopia. Geldof had the idea of raising funds with a one-off charity single featuring the cream of the current pop world. Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Paul Young, Culture Club, George Michael, Sting, Bono, Phil Collins, Paul Weller, Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt of Status Quo and Bananarama all appeared on the recording.
From a couple of years ago. Check out the Francis Rossi-esque guitar solo...
The Final Countdown: Top of the Pops Terry Staunton, Record Collector, September 2006 With the BBC pulling the plug on Top Of The Pops after 42 years, the stars share their memories. NODDY HOLDER (Slade) – TOTP debut: 'The Shape Of Things To Come', March 1970 "The floor manager and crew used to call us the house band, we were there so often. Generally, if we weren't Number One and on last they'd put us on right at the beginning, they always wanted something good and hard to kick-start the show. The problem with that was that the opening act would have to be there first, so we'd have to get there at nine in the morning for our first soundcheck. It made for a long day, but things always went a bit quicker once the booze turned up at around lunchtime. "Our dressing room was usually the party room. We were always a drinking band, and the other guests would think - rightly - that we'd be the ones with the alcohol. I reckon we helped loads of acts give really upbeat performances, 'cause they'd been necking it ...
The Top 50 Status Quo songs pt.3 (30-21) Comments 2 gbarton at 03:31pm December 17 2013 Our countdown of the Top 50 Status Quo songs continues. Go below for the third part of our rundown: Nos. 40 to 31… Nos. 50 to 41 are here. Nos. 40 to 31 are here. 30) Softer Ride 1973 Yet another song from the evergreen Hello! album, Softer Ride had first appeared as the B-side of the Paper Plane single. By turns introspective and fiery, Alan Lancaster and Rick Parfitt’s paean to the delights of slothdom has returned to the band’s set in recent years. Fantastic stuff. 29) In The Army Now 1986 Parfitt took the plaudits for Rockin’ All Over The World, but it was Rossi who imagined the possibilities of In The Army Now after hearing the original on the radio. Written and recorded by the Dutch brothers Rob and Ferdi Bolland, it was a brave though ultimately popular choice for Quo to have made. 28) Down The Dustpipe 1970 What do Status Quo have in common with Welsh progressive rockers Man? Well, the former first hear ...
Often forgetting that all days are never Holidays for most of the impoverished world in which we are living in. You need not look to Africa to find children starving for food, warmth, education and human affection. Look in your own cities and counties first. Think global act local. Urging you to make the effort to volunteer your time or skills or write a check this Holiday Season to your local outreach organization, or food bank. A little bit goes a long long way and yes you can make the difference. Really you can afford to donate the price of that foo foo coffee you buy every day for the rest of the month and be happier, healthier and make a deposit in the first bank of Karma for your soul.

Status Quo have been added to the bill for next year’s Download festival, which takes place at Donington on the weekend of June 13-15. Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt and co are among 12 acts named to appear under headliners Aerosmith, Avenged Sevenfold and Linkin Park (who’ll perform classic album Hybrid Theory in full). The other additions are the Offspring, Steel Panther, Trivium, In Flames, While She Sleeps, Letlive, The Black Dahlia Murder, Crossfaith, Miss May I, Blessthefall and Dying Fetus. Quo – who recently confirmed their Frantic Four lineup would reunite for “one last go” – last played Donington when they headlined Monsters Of Rock in 1982. Rossi says: “That year saw the Falklands War, the launch of the Commodore 64, Aston Villa winning the European Cup and the raising of the Mary Rose. You might say a lot has changed since then – but we’re still rocking and still playing the Quo hits.” Alter Bridge, Rob Zombie and Fall Out Boy have been previously announced as Download’s spe ...

The thing we should fear the most is the viciousness of the defenders the Status Quo. And I don't mean Rick Parfitt & Francis Rossi.

10 stone *** on TV tonight. Or as they prefer to be called, Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt.
Cannot begin to explain how much of an awesome time I had tonight. 10CC were incredible, Status Quo were absolutely amazing. Felt like such a lucky guy to be there today. One of the highlights was meeting Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi, yeah fair enough it was only a quick "Hi how you doing" but still a massive privilege and thrill to be in they're presence. You can say what you like about Status Quo, be it the old "they only use 3 chords" line or anything else, but at the end of the day, they still put on a loud, fast and intense rock n roll show. 4th QUO show tonight, hopefully make it a fifth later on this year in Glasgow, but today/tonight was such a huge thrill and if you don't like Status Quo then fair enough, but I do, I love Status Quo, I don't care if I get the *** taken out of me for it. So many people having a great time, and I was sure as *** one of them :)
From VIEW - the review. We never expected this to win awards but some of the reviews are really quite good... This watchable action adventure comedy starring Status Quo’s Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi is fairly entertaining and features an upbeat and recognisable soundtrack
Also, I have to write this down so I didn't dream it, but Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi are in a knockabout screwball comedy thriller?
On thee Fulcrum discussion board (probably appear in several days' time) I've rejected the assumption that I have long whiskers and bell-bottomed trousers - I'm not Jason King but rather a combination of Charles Ives and Francis Rossi.

Status Quo in Wolverhampton last night. Not the cabaret act of recent years but the real thing, the original four-piece. Still got a lump in me froat. Fantastic gig. I never realised, having not seen them when they invented denim, what a star Alan Lancaster is. Great bass player, great singer. Recommended. Even my mate who accompanied me, a jazz fan and having seen Steve Reich the night before, thought it was great. John Coghlan - what can you say? The ship's engine. Solid as a rock. The other two were quite good too :) I was surprised to find that Francis Rossi did ALL the lead stuff. The Parf still looks 15. If you get a chance, go see. It's the opposite of X Factor, and so much the better for it. Thanks Gillie for the tix. Safe travels xxx

Says Letley: "It's been a fantastic journey over the past twelve years or so, but I have decided that now is the right time for me to leave QUO and move on to something new. "No doubt there will be much conjecture that this is somehow related to the upcoming reunion gigs, but I'd like to assure everyone that it has no bearing on my decision. Indeed, I wish the guys every success with this tour and certainly hope to come along to see one of the shows!

The idea is to use the double live album [1977’s Live!, recorded at Glasgow Apollo] as the template for the set. That’s the obvious thing to do.”
