After much deliberation I have come to the conclusion that Status Quo’s “Piledriver” was definitely the most important album of my (early) youth. Released in 1972, I don’t think there is a single note on the album I haven’t heard a million times.
There are many detractors, all of whom I’m not even going to acknowledge. This album (along with other early Quo releases) has rocked my world for more than forty years.
Don’t Waste My Time.
Big Fat Moma.
At this very moment my well-worn original LP, bought the week it was released, is spinning on my Dual 510 … and it still rocks.
