Ep 9: Status Quo's Francis Rossi Loves Peptigen+

Ep 9: Status Quo's Francis Rossi Loves Peptigen+

In the world of rock 'n' roll, maintaining peak physical and mental health amidst the whirlwind of touring can be a challenge. Yet, there are those who not only embrace the chaos but thrive with it. One such individual is none other than Francis Rossi, OBE, the legendary co-founder, lead singer, and lead guitarist of Status Quo.

Last September, we were honoured when Francis' team reached out to us. Francis has been a regular user of our Peptigen+ Multi Collagen for a couple of years, relying on our collagen to support him during his UK tours.

We had the privilege of sitting down with Francis Rossi to delve into his health journey and glean insights into how he maintains his vitality while on the road:

How do you maintain a healthy diet while on the road, and what are some of your favourite go-to foods for staying energised?

"Having spent most of my life touring I know how important it is to look after the body when on the road. The important thing is to eat well and regularly. I always have fresh fruit and eat my last meal of the day very early on show days, around 2 or 3pm"

What roles does exercise play in your daily routine while touring? Could you share some of your preferred exercise or fitness practices on the road?

"Exercise is a huge part of getting myself ready for a performance. I do twelve minutes walking at pace after every meal. I’ll do a routine of upper body work and crunches each day, and I’ll always swim when it’s possible to do so"

Are there any specific challenges you face in terms of staying fit and healthy while touring, and how do you overcome them?

"Whilst obviously I don’t have access to my own gym set up, or indeed kitchen when I’m on the road, experience has taught me that it is crucial to look after the health side of my life. At any of my shows, any specific requests that I have around food provision or ingredients is made ahead of time and is part of the package of requirements at each venue."

Are there any specific wellness or self-care rituals you follow to help you stay balanced and focused during the tour?

"On the road I’ve been using So Body Co’s Peptigen+ Multi Collagen for a couple of years now. I notice the difference it makes, certainly to things like nails and hair – not that I have much of the latter. Since also adding the So Body Co’s Gorgeous Greens product to my diet, I feel like I’m more lively, have more light behind the eyes, and even a better complexion."

What advice would you give to other musicals or individuals who frequently travel for work on how to prioritise their health and well-being while on the road?

I would advise anyone else – young or old – to not fall into the trap of following the 70s myth of the rock ’n’ roll lifestyle. And trust me I know! Look after yourself so that you are in the right frame of mind for the performance: the audience deserves it.

Finally, would you say your commitment to a healthy lifestyle made a significant difference in your music career?

The simple reason that I have been able to continue for so long (and to enjoy it so much) is that I made those changes in lifestyle in my mid-30s. That allows me to be fully prepared, and able to deal with the rigours of performing, whether it be with the band on my own solo music and talk shows. What I do is a privilege not a right, and I take care of myself so that I can be at my best.

Francis Rossi's journey serves as a testament to the power of resilience, discipline, and the transformative potential of holistic health practices. At So Body Co., we're proud to support individuals like Francis in their quest for vitality and excellence, empowering them to shine both onstage and off.
