Legendary Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt passed away in the early hours of this morning.
The 68-year-old died in a Spanish hospital following years of ill health - Parfitt had been recuperating since June when he suffered a heart attack but died after suffering from a severe infection.
After years of drug-taking and hard living, Parfitt, from Woking, Surrey, had been dogged by health concerns. Most recently, he pulled out of the band's tour following a heart attack over the summer.
Queen legend Brian May led the tributes - saying that he 'rocked our world'.
One of the most celebrated live performances of Parfitt's career came at Live Aid on July 13 1985, when he opened the historic 16-hour concert with Status Quo in a 15-minute slot at the original Wembley Stadium which was broadcast around the world.
