An unused Status Quo, fabric, sew on patch, featuring bass guitarist Alan Lancaster. Issued around the late 1970’s, early 1980’s. It has blue wording and border and has a colourful illustration of A.L. on a white background and measures 67mm x 84mm. In good as new condition.


As the years slide by we really forget what giants in the world of rock n roll Status Quo were. The fact that sew-on patches were produced for all band members speaks volumes (ahem) of just how popular they once were. I recently found these on eBay and thought they look tres cool. I must admit (being a regular Sydney Bombers gig-goer from day one) that I do have a fondness for Quo’s blood curdling rhythm section – John and Alan. I bet the denim clad Quo Army member who once had these sewn on to their jacket in the 70’s has some great live memories to tell their kids !
