The Music Never Dies

This week Prince became the latest in a seemingly bewildering number of prominent celebrity deaths in 2016. After Lemmy from Motorhead passed away at Christmas, the Grim Reaper seems to have been putting together his own entertainment festival, picking up people like David Bowie, Victoria Wood, Glenn Frey, Ronnie Corbett, Paul Daniels, Terry Wogan, Frank Kelly, Alan Rickman, and many other, with Prince being the latest. We’re only in April and already the year hasn’t been great for the celebrity world.

Album Reviews – Status Quo Deluxe CDs

In this post I’m going to review the 3 albums that Status Quo have just re-released as deluxe editions On The LevelIf You Can’t Stand The Heat and Whatever You Want. Each consists of 2 CDs – one for the original album, and the second for bonus tracks – plus a booklet, all within fold-out packaging. The albums are also available as downloads (without digital booklets). I tend to download albums online these days, but for my favourite bands like Status Quo, whose physical CDs I’ve bought over many years, I like to keep buying the CDs, at least for their studio albums. There are plenty of live shows of theirs I’ve downloaded.
