Whatever you want from a Status Quo documentary Alan G. Parker's lively film has it.

Covering 65 years and all three chords, the uncles of rock talk about their past and how one inflammable jacket and The Doors ’‘Roadhouse Blues’ led to a five-decade rock-out.

Parker’s technique – clips, talking heads and title cards – is as meat-and-potatoes as the band itself, and turns what could have been This Is Spinal Tap without irony into glowing anecdotes from Brian May, Paul Weller and Cliff Richard.

Francis Rossi tells them best, recounting how four dreaming headbangers turned into the establishment.
