Stacie And Joel - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

Did the Queen Complain About Rick Allen's Union Jack Shorts?

"We've met the Queen. She certainly didn't say anything when we met her on - 2002 it was, and we played a gig in Leeds in England and she was there with her husband and we got to stand in line while she went past and shook everybody's hand and all that kind of stuff. I didn't hear anything coming out of her mouth like going 'take off the shorts'."
