Status Quo set for Lifetime Achievement Award

Legendary rockers Status Quo will be honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award in July for their outstanding contributions to music. 

The 'Rockin' All Over The World' stars, who have enjoyed a career of over 40 years in the industry, will receive the exclusive trophy on July 1 at the Silver Clef Awards ceremony in London. Speaking of the news, the band released a statement that reads: 

"We've supported Nordoff Robbins for some time. The work they do, helping people through music, giving them hope, is a really amazing thing."

"We are proud and honoured to be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Silver Clef Lunch."

"To be receiving this Award from an organisation who have been transforming lives through music for over 50 years makes this an even greater honour."

Status Quo are showing no signs of slowing things down as their tour diary for this year alone will take them all over Europe each month up until December and you can watch part of their current tour's set here:
