John Coghlan’s Quo

JCQ played the first Status Quo Fan Club Convention in 2015 and couldn’t wait to play it again. John is one of Quo’s founding members, and we were delighted to welcome him back to Butlin’s for our second Convention. JCQ are currently John Coghlan, Mick Hughes, Rick Chase and Rick Abbs.
