Rick Parfitt, of the English band Status Quo, passed away yesterday at the age of 68. Although famed around the world for their blues-oriented music of their post-1970 period, the are best remembered in the US for their only hit single here, Pictures of Matchstick Men. Although Rick does not perform on the single, he joined the band at the beginning of their tour in support of the album which contained the song, and was lead singer on their first television performance of the song.

Here's the performance, with Rick (with the moustache) as lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Francis Rossi as backing singer (he is double-tracked as lead singer on the single) and lead guitarist, Roy Lynes on keyboards, John Coughlin on drums, and Alan Lancaster on bass:

RIP Rick! May the angels sing and dance to the rhythm of your mighty Telecaster!
