The Spectres were formed by school friends Mike Rossi and Alan Lancaster in 1962. John Coghlan joined as drummer from another local band The Cadets. They had previously been known as the Scorpions and changed their name to the Spectres when Coghlan joined. They primarily played rock 'n' roll standards in South London clubs, the first date being at the Samuel Jones sports club. Their first composition was Lancaster's You Are My Girl. Roy Lynes replaced the original organ player. It was at Butlins that they met Rick Parfitt (then going by the name of Ricky Harrison) who was in a band called The Highlights. Both the Spectres and the Highlights were playing a summer season at Butlins. In July 1966, the Spectres were sign to Piccadilly, a subsidiary label of Pye. In 1967 The Spectres would change their name, first to Traffic Jam, then, to avoid confusion with Stevie Winwood's Traffic, to Status Quo. From there, with Parfitt on board, they embarked on a career which would sustain them for over thirty years as one of Britain's most popular rock bands.
