Status Quo’s Rick Parfitt may not return to band over heart fears


Rock guitarist Rick Parfitt has revealed how he narrowly survived a massive heart attack, but it may cost him his career.

He has been forced to quit playing with Status Quo until next year at the earliest, and fears a return to the stage could kill him.

Parfitt hasn't played guitar for three months and has told Sky News the full story about his collapse, shortly after a concert in Turkey in June.

    The legacy that Parfitt and Rossi created over the last 50 years is
    testament to the fact that these guys are amazing. Rick has every right to
    take it easy now. Francis Rossi also has every right to continue touring as
    Status Quo. I hope that they both live long and happy lives.
