Status Quo - Status Quo Struggled On Tiring Movie Shoot

Status Quo rocker Rick Parfitt battled tiredness during the group's first foray into film because he is not used to working such long hours.

The British band headed to Fiji to play themselves in 90-minute action adventure Bula Quo!, and Parfitt admits shooting a movie on a tiny budget meant they had to leave their rock star demands behind.

He tells the Bbc, "We've never worked that hard. Twelve to 13 hours a day, non-stop, without thrills. The film is done on a shoe-string budget, we didn't have caravans or anything like that, we were sitting on the pavement in between shots."

The shoot was particularly hard for Parfitt as he recently revealed he had to cut his hair short during filming after his famous long locks began to fall out.
