Wrinkly rockers are left hopping mad
Pensioner rock band Status Quo is currently touring UK and Europe. Back in the Quo’s 80s prime, during a tour of Australia, the tour bus hit a kangaroo while in transit through the desert. Everyone piled out to look and very soon the kangaroo corpse was dressed in Quo tour t-shirt, denims and shades, and propped up against the bus for a photo-opportunity with the band.
However the animal was not dead, merely stunned. Suddenly it came to, and bounded off into the desert still dressed like Rick Parfitt. The band and roadies fell about laughing and wandered back on to the bus… until someone realised that the denim jacket they put on the kangaroo belonged to the bus driver… and it still had the keys to the bus in it.
