MOST music fans are happy to sing along to their favourite bands.

But Alan Crook, from Brandon, has turned the situation on its head after writing a tune for his heroes, Status Quo.

To Alan’s delight, his song – titled Any Way You Like It – earned a place on the new Quo album, Quid Pro Quo.

A lifelong fan, Alan has seen the Quo more than 400 times, performs in a tribute band called Quo No! and has met his heroes on more than one occasion.

A part-time poet, Alan wrote the lyrics and sent them off to the band’s keyboardist.

He said: “I wanted to get that commercial edge of Whatever You Want and so I came up with the four line chorus and wrote it around that.

“The song is a really happy little number – they’ve made it unbelievably catchy.”
