John Coghlan, former drummer and founder member of Status Quo, took time out from his very busy schedule to chat with me, Dave Bradbery of Planetmosh. Covering topics from  ‘how it all began’, to the making of the ‘Live’ double album recorded at the Glasgow Apollo over three nights in October 1976.  His favorite Quo album, life after he quit the band in 1981, future plans for him and his own band, and the recent 2014 ‘Frantic Four’ tour.  He also talked about his love of military vehicles, and I asked him about his favorite drum kit set up, also did he have any advise for budding drummers!

Apologies in advance for the poor sound quality, as this was completely out of my personal control.
