Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt has died in hospital in Spain aged 68, his manager has said.
He died from a severe infection after being admitted to hospital on Thursday following complications to a shoulder injury.
Parfitt had been due to launch a solo career with an album and autobiography planned for 2017.
He has suffered a series of health problems including having to undergo a quadruple heart bypass in 1997.
In October, the musician said he would no longer be performing with his band after suffering from a heart attack in the summer.
Parfitt is survived by his wife Lyndsay, their twins Tommy and Lily and his adult children Rick Jnr and Harry, a statement from the family said.

Country connection: Quo had a top ten hit with Wild Side Of Life back in the mid '70s.

Country is a state of mind, not a state of America.
