Francis Rossi 1977

770908 Francis Rossi

“Mike” Francis Rossie of Status Quo on a back-page poster in Bravo of 8 September 1977. I put up the Dead End Kids high in a corner of our bedroom wall, having lost the Great Poster Debate; the Rossi poster was on eye-level.Rossi, who was 28 at the time, was voted Bravo readers’ 7th-most popular guitarist.Soon “Rockin’ All Over The World” would become a big hit.

Bravo liked Francis Rossi; he featured before on his own on a poster in 1976.
