POPULAR ROCK MUSIC GUITARIST RICK PARFITT DIES AT 68 IN SPAIN





Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt has died in hospital in Spain after suffering from a severe infection, his manager said today. 
The 68-year-old had been recuperating at his Mediterranean home since June, after he suffered a heart attack. 
The veteran musician was taken into hospital in Marbella on Thursday evening due to complications with a pre-existing shoulder injury.
He died there at lunchtime on Saturday, his manager and family said in a statement. 
As a member of Status Quo, Parfitt found success globally with hits such as Rockin' All Over The World and Whatever You Want. 

Rick is survived by his third wife Lyndsay, who he was married to for a decade, their twins Tommy and Lily, and his adult children Rick Jnr and Harry.  
Today, Rick Jnr tweeted saying: 'I cannot describe the sadness I feel right now. To many he was a rockstar, to me he was simply 'Dad', and I loved him hugely. RIP Padda Parf.
