Rick Parfitt 1948 - 2016
We've lost a lot of talented people this year, but for me, the news last night that Rick Parfitt had died has to be the saddest of all.

I don't know how well known Status Quo are outside of Britain or Europe, but for fans of classic British rock, this is some really devastating news.

Rick was purely a rhythm guitarist, and proud of it. He played the same beat up Telecaster for 40 years. What he played seems so simple, but required a lot of physical effort. When asked about his guitar playing technique, he simply said "I whack fuck out of it..."

I used to play with the brother in law of the SQ member with the dark hair.

I heard about this on the 24th.

Bummer of a year.

We also lost better, but less famous musicians. The musicians know. Others, not so much.

Sad

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
