Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott remembered both Steve Clark and Prince on his weekly radio show last night.

A week after Steve would have turned 56 Joe played a Def Leppard song to remember him at the end of his show.

The classic instrumental 'Switch 625' closed the show.

He also played Prince's song 'The Same December' following his death on 21st April.

Taken from his 1996 'Chaos And Disorder' album which was his 18th overall (out of 39) and one of three released that year.

As mentioned Steve and Phil attended a couple of Prince shows in August 1986 in Sweden and France.

Following his Paris show they watched him perform at a small after gig club show and met him backstage.

The Joe Elliott Show - 30th April Quotes


"Showing the world he could rock just as much as he could funk. But we all knew that anyway didn't we. From his album Chaos And Disorder the very T. Rexy sounding The Same December there from Prince."

Steve Clark

"So until then gonna pay tribute to my very good friend Steve Clark. Who would have been 56 years old last Saturday. I didn't mention him last week because I paid tribute to Steve in writing last week. This week though it is time to let the music do the talking. So from the 1981 High 'n' Dry album here's Steve with his classic instrumental Switch 625. Until next week see ya!."
