DVD Review – Hello Quo @Filmoria


Hello Quo is the 50 years in the making story of British rock legends Status Quo.  It delves into their humble beginnings and climaxes with (possibly not very) heartfelt hugging reunions. Director Alan G. Parker, who I was lucky enough to interview yesterday ahead of the film's Leicester Square premiere last night, has managed to persuade a huge range of recognizable faces to appear in his documentary including Brian May and  Sir Cliff Richard.


All the hits are here with amazing access to all the members, past and present, and fans will no doubt revel in the tales of Top of the Pops performances, drug fuelled recording sessions, charity work, and where are they now details.  The aging rockers make for great raconteurs and the Spinal Tap similarities will have you giggling frequently.

There is something for everyone in this exhaustive rock-doc and fans and casual viewers are likely to be amply entertained equally.

Check out the full Hello Quo review over at Filmoria now and be sure to check out my interview with director Alan G. Parker tomorrow.
