Johnnie Walker meets English boogie rockers Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt from Status Quo.

The Quo have released an incredible 29 studio albums during their long career and 22 of their singles have made it into the UK Top 10. The pair talk about the last 50 years together, as well as reuniting with original band members ahead of their Christmas tour.

Johnnie also looks at the work of The Jam in the 1970s, on the 30th anniversary of their split in 1982, when Paul Weller was just 24 years old. Johnnie takes a tour through their 1970s' albums In The City, This Is The Modern World, All Mod Cons and Setting Sons, picking his favourites and telling the stories.
