Status Quo Celebrate 100th Single 'Bula Bula Quo

Status Quo Celebrate 100th Single 'Bula Bula Quo' -

Status Quo have two reasons to celebrate this week. Firstly the rock veterans reached the milestone of their 100th single release and secondly their new album 'Bula Quo!' was named album of the week by BBC Radio 2.

After 45 years since the release of their first single 'Pictures Of Matchstick Men' their new track 'Bula Bula Quo' marks Francis Rossi and Rock Parfitt's 100th single.

Rossi said of the achievement:

"One hundred singles seems incredible even to me - and I recorded them all. When we started out we would have been happy to survive a couple of years in this business. To reach this milestone is unbelievable."

Parfitt adds:

"We always joke that you'd get less time for a murder. But in all honesty we'd like to thank all the Quo fans all over the world who have sustained us on an amazing ride."

Status Quo will tour the UK in December with special guests 10cc.
