Bees ace given rock star status
Status Quo (John Edwards right)
I'd rather be watching Brentford

Brentford striker Lloyd Owusu is rockin' all over the world after Status Quo's bass player wrote a song for him.

The track, entitled Owusu The One And Only, has registered enough downloads from the club's website to get it on to Top of the Pops, but unfortunately football sites are not recognised by the chart authorities.

More than 8,000 Bees fans have accessed the song since its release less than a fortnight ago.

Owusu's unique goal celebration wows Bees fans

Owusu, who rejoined Brentford from Reading in the close season, said: "The response has been unbelievable.

"If the same number of people had downloaded the song from a music site it would be in the top 20."

The 29-year-old, who has netted 10 times for Brentford since his return to Griffin Park, admitted: "I've never been a Quo fan, I'm more into R&B and funky house - but John's song is wicked.

He spent his time in the wilderness, now he's back where he belongs. It made me so happy to see him again, I had to write me a song.

"Most footballers have abuse chanted at them but not many have had songs written."

Quo bassist John 'Rhino' Edwards, who wrote the rocking ditty, said: "I've been a Brentford fan for 42 years and it's been brilliant to have Lloyd back. He plays his heart out.

"I'll miss the last few games of the season because we'll be touring Australia, so I want us to get promoted from League One before I go Down Under."
