Status Quo's Francis Rossi 
On Guitars, Music, and Elusive Success 
     by Elliot Stephen Cohen 
This article originally appeared in VG March 2014 issue. 

When I was very young, my dad bought me a Guild Starfire, then a stereo Gibson. Later, I was doing things with Pete Ham from Badfinger, and he had this black-and-green Grimshaw, which was kind of a Les Paul copy. I loved it, and swapped my cheap guitar in return for his, but then the bridge collapsed and it was no good.

1974年3月3日に William and Mary Hall, Williamsburg, Virginia で上記バンドによるコンサートが開催されたのかよくわからない。Badfinger のサイトや本には前日3月2日の同じVirginia州でのライブは載っているが、この日は書かれていない。Status Quo のサイトには 03/03/1974  USA, Williamsburg - College William & Mary (with Nazareth) と書かれていた。 の Nazareth を調べると、当日はドイツのRock Festivalに出演と書いてある。
