Hot Press - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

"A few times. The first, god bless Bono, was when he was in Dublin on the Sound & Vision tour and he came to a party in Bono's house. He knew I was such a fan, he must have said to David, 'Give Joe five minutes'. There were about 100 people there, so I had my little meet and greet, like when people meet The Pope or something. He was really sweet! Then I saw him in the Baggot with the first Tin Machine album and the next time was in the Factory. He remembered me from Bono's house so we talked and he introduced me to (wife) Iman and (band member) Gail Ann Dorsey, who's a huge Leppard fan!"

Thanks to Robert.
