Faded Memory

Album: One Step at a Time (2010)
  • Francis Rossi is best known along with Rick Parfitt as a time-serving guitarist with Status Quo. Anyone familiar with the band's discography will realize this is not a Quo song, so it appeared on Rossi's solo album One Step At A Time. Short and to the point, it was written by Rossi with Bob Young - the unofficial fifth member of the band - and was inspired by Rossi's addiction to tobacco. Best not to mention the other, far more expensive drug he was known to take on occasion.
  • "Faded Memory" was released as a promo CD single in March 2010 on the Ear Music label; Side 1 was the radio edit and was backed by the album version, which is slightly longer at 2 minutes 59 seconds. >>
