Trudi And Jim - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Vivian's Health/Album Recording/Tour

"He's about to enter the gates of hell to be quite honest. He's having Stem Cell Surgery for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. So he's been given the rest of the year off. Luckily we're recording a new album but we've got all Viv's bits done. All that's left to do really is a few backing vocals. Lots of lead vocals and some harmony stuff for me, Sav and Phil can do. So Vivian's done until he gets well and then he'll join us again next year for the tour for the new record."

2015 Studio Album

"We're hoping - we did a bunch of work in February. We went into the studio in February to do about - we thought we'd write four songs and we ended up with 12. We went back in just before the KISS tour and we did four more. So they're all at different stages of undress. So some of them are ready to put out tomorrow and some of them still need melodies and lyrics for them. We've got the music done so you know it's a work in progress. But we're gonna finish it off for the rest of this year and hopefully it'll be ready to put out by April or May next year."
