Tributes flooded social media after the sad demise of Alan Charles Lancaster, an English bassist and a notable member of the English rock band Status Quo. The report says Alan passed away in the early hours of today September 26 2021 at the age of 72.
Reports from sources further explained that the British born music royalty, guitar God and founding member of the iconic band, Status Quo departed the mother earth at his Sydney home, surrounded by family.
No cause of death was disclosed to the public but could be recalled that Alan for some time now has been dealing with Multiple Sclerosis.
Status Quo began Rockin’ All Over The World in 1967. The legendary band amassed decades of hit songs, including Down Down and Whatever You Want. Alan married his beautiful wife Dayle Lancaster in 1978.
They met when Alan and Status Quo, along with Slade and Lindisfarne, toured Australia in 1973. Alan, who was a dear and special friend, is survived by Dayle, his children Alan Jr, Toni and David, plus five grandchildren. Dayle said this morning that Alan loved his life in Australia.
His mother and father, plus his brother and sister also moved to Australia. Dayle said: ‘we are all heartbroken. Alan had a wonderful wit and a fabulously dry sense of humour.
He was a devoted and adoring husband, father and grandfather. The family was always his focus.’ Despite having MS and issues with his mobility, Alan participated in hugely successful reunion tours in the UK & Europe in 2013 & 2014. He bravely played to thousands of adoring fans.
In 1998 the music icon formed The Bombers in Sydney with The Angels’ guitarist John Brewster. Brewster and Lancaster later had the Lancaster Brewster Band with Angry Anderson as their occasional singer.
Alan was also a member of the Australian supergroup The Party Boys in 1987. They had a couple of hits with covers of ‘Hold Your Head Up’ and ‘He’s Gonna Step On You Again’.

Thoughts and Prayers are with Alan Lancaster’s friends and family tonight along with former band mates in Status Quo. I first watched Quo in 1991 at the G Mex in Manchester, then again at the Apollo in Manchester in 2010. Rick has called for Alan for a jam session. @Status_Quo pic.twitter.com/pF509q3bnL
