"If You Can't Stand The Heat"
Man I loved this when younger. Used to play real good darts up in my room when I played this... to my older bro's annoyance....lol
Fav song on it was 'Stones'

If that is the sort of music you play, good luck to you.
Don't get too sniffy sunshine.
My very fond memories of Quo were with seeing them live at the Free Trade Hall 40 years ago when they were bloody brilliant, many years before Marguerita Time and You're in the Army and all that sort of rubbish. Before you dismiss Quo, back in 1973 they were one of the best live bands around if all you wanted to do was rock out, and as a 16 year old that's all I wanted to do.
Easy target the Quo but they were one of the best in their day.
Might put Piledriver on before I go to bed and get my head down, down, deeper and down.
The pertinent bit is " In their day" . That day was 40 years ago . Saw them at Reading in 1978 . They came on after Spirit , I went home .
They do what they do very well (they've had enough practice), but after a few songs I would be bored .
If they were any good then surely they wouldn't be an "EASY TARGET"??? They are bad enough but can you imagine all the 100% sad bottoms that will be in the audience.

As I said, 40 years ago they were great. I don't play their stuff now but I certainly did back then. The period between being a pop band and re-inventing themselves as a heads down no nonsense rock band was great, but once the hits started coming again within a couple of years or so it soon went rapidly downhill.
They might be rubbish these days but if people still want to pay and see them, why not carry on?
