Planet Rock - Joe Elliott/Scott Gorham Interview Quotes

"I first got to know Scott in 1980 when we'd signed to the same label. We were on Vertigo/Mercury and because of that connection it got me passes to the backstage area of the Sheffield City Hall. The 1980 album would have been - China Town and that's when I met Scott and they were staying in the hotel in Sheffield so we went back to the bar and - destroyed it probably!

"But before then and he won't remember this. In 1976/77/78 when I was a mere fan down the front at the City Hall. Lizzy were the only band in existence that used to let the fans through the dressing room like four at a time. So I'd actually met him three times but he hadn't met me if you know what I mean."
