“For a whole generation of long-haired, denim-clad boogie boys, Coghlan remains the only genuine Quo drummer.”
“Alan said, ‘Barry was a good bloke but a very average drummer. He was just a kid, like us. John was on another level’.
“One evening, as the band were taking a break, John crept up on to the stage and sat on the drummer’s stool. ‘He shoo-ed me away, but I thought ‘I like this’.”
“A French rock critic, in translation, described John’s style of drumming as ‘unique, square and crazy at the same time’.”
