Alan Lancaster, Bassist und Mitgründer der britischen Rockband STATUS QUO Alan Lancaster ist mit 72 Jahren gestorben. Heute am Sonntag gab die Band den Tod von Alan Lancaster auf ihrer Webseite bekannt. Der Bassist sei im Alter von 72 Jahren gestorben, schreibt die Band. Er litt seit Jahren an Multipler Sklerose.
Francis Rossi sagte: "I am so sorry to hear of Alan’s passing. We were friends and colleagues for many years and achieved fantastic success together as the Frantic Four alongside Rick Parfitt and John Coghlan. Alan was an integral part of the sound and the enormous success of Status Quo druring the 60s and 70s. Although it is well documented that we were estranged in recent years, I will always have very fond memories of our early days together and my condolences go to Dayle and Alan's family."
Status Quo Manager Simon Porter fügte hinzu: "This is such sad news and my sincere condolences go out to Dayle and the family. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to reunite the original line up for two sellout tours in 2013/2014 and to give Status Quo Frantic Four fans a final legacy and such a lasting memory. Although Alan was not in the best of health even then, he got through the tours with determination and grit and was a pleasure to work with."
