Tom Barnard/The KQ Morning Show - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

The Art Of McCartney

"Well it's called The Art Of Paul McCartney and it's got - forgive me I can't remember every single artist that's on there but there's like Billy Joel, Alice Cooper, Roger Daltrey. There's all sorts of folks on there and Def Leppard are on it of course."

"Def Leppard do Helen Wheels and then I got a phone call just after we delivered that from basically via the band. Paul's current band Abe Laboriel, Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray, who I know quite well, they said would I do a song with them. So I did Hi Hi Hi. So I'm on it twice which was great fun you know."

"I think there's two Billy Joel tracks as well but there's a lot of artists. Chrissie Hynde's on it. It's one of those - a lot of tribute records that come out they have real kind of low end artists on them. You know people you've never heard of. This one you know we were always hoping we'd be the least known. That means that you're on a good compilation if you're the least known artist."
