We are very proud that John and Gillie have been our patrons and most ardent supporters since 2007 never missing an opportunity to promote Westie ReHoming. John was an original member of a band with many names including 'Traffic Jam' but the group eventually settled on a name and became none other than the legends of Rock 'Status Quo', with John playing on drums with the group from 1962 1981.

After leaving 'Quo' John collaborated with several other Rock N Roll stars of the era producing great music, all whilst forming and performing with his own band aptly named 'John Coghlan's Quo'. His band has toured successfully across the UK and Europe playing well known Quo standards amongst many other great songs.

A recent highlight came in March 2013 when, for the first time in over three decades, vocalist/guitarists Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt, bassist/vocalist Alan Lancaster and drummer John took to the stage once more as the legendary 'Quo' playing six sold out UK dates.

John and Gillie have had westies for many years. Their first westie was Ben, followed by Ellie, and currently the delightful 'Betsey Boo', a bright, lovable little girl, adopted from Westie ReHoming
