Rhino has made an interesting contribution!
The book is hardback and contains 400 pages, there are 10 pages of fans’ photos – some of the band and others of fans with various members of Quo.
This book has been made possible only because of the fans themselves writing down their memories and sending in photos (and ticket stubs for the cover). It truly is a book by the fans, for the fans.
Four years later Goin’ Quoin’ – a collection of fans’ memories has been published.
