We took a trip up to London (our second in three weekends, after not having been for several years).
This time the main reason was for me to go to a Status Quo gig at the Hammersmith Odeon – it will always be the Odeon to me, not the Apollo.
There, I’ve said it. My name is Simon and I’m a Status Quo fan.
In all fairness, this was the original lineup playing for the first time in over 30 years and I never saw that lineup play. They had also committed to playing nothing they recorded after 1976, which happens to be the point that I think they started going downhill. Rockin’ All Over The World was the start of a long slow decline. Prior to that, they were a fantastic rock band.
Anyway, you’re here for the photos. We have three from around the Temple Quay area of Bristol – we allowed plenty of time for the bus to get there and had time to kill. Then a couple from wandering around London on the Saturday, and some from the Science and V&A museums on the Sunday. And finally a couple from the Quo concert!
