RICHARD JOHN PARFITT was born on 12 October 1948
in Woking, England. He would have celebrated his
75th birthday today.

He was the blond God riff-king and 24/7 party animal
of legendary 12-bar boogie rockers STATUS QUO.

I saw the Quo countless times live. Am I serious? Absolutely
It was always no-nonsense, sweaty-head-banging entertainment.
And I liked-liked-liked-it. Rockin’ all over the world. Fun, fun, fun.

Unfortunately, Parfitt passed away on
22 December 2016 due to blood poisoning.

Keep on rockin’ in heaven, Rick.
