    Although huge in England, they are one hit wonders in America.
    They called themselves Traffic Jam before being forced to change their name by Steve Winwood's band Traffic (1967).
    Former bassist Alan Lancaster sued to try to prevent the rest of the band from continuing to use the 'Status Quo' name (1985).
    Rossi admitted about their performance at Live Aid, 'After we finished, we spent most of the time doing loads of cocaine in the toilets. We didn't spend much time thinking about the starving in Ethiopia.'
    Rossi started going bald from traction alopecia due to an overly tight trademark ponytail.
    They have over 60 chart hits in Britain, a record for a rock band.
    They were the opening act in London for Live Aid (1985).
    Rossi and Parfitt earned 50,000 pounds for charity on the celebrity edition of 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.' (2007)
    'Pictures of Matchstick Men' was covered by Ozzy Osbourne and Camper van Beethoven.
