16th February saw the first public exhibition of Quo memorabilia. Held at the Barbican, Silk Street, London it ran until 22nd May – Celebrating Seven Decades of Quo.
The exhibition focused on telling Status Quo’s story through the band’s music and memorabilia. The original handwritten lyrics to ‘Caroline’ and ‘Down Down’ were on display for the first time, along with tour-related posters, photographs and over 40 of the band’s key albums.
The free exhibition was a collaboration between Paul and Yvonne Hanvey, who run the band’s Official Fan Club, From The Makers Of… (FTMO…), and Status Quo fan and record collector, Andy Campbell.
