Awards Acceptance Speech Quotes

Joe Elliott - "And there's a few people that have left us this year so we'd like to dedicate this to Lemmy. To Dale Griffin from Mott The Hoople and to David Bowie. Cherish your heroes, you'll miss them when they're gone."

TeamRock - Interview Quotes

Joe Elliott - "Yeah me and Phil first came down here to do promo in '83. And that set the tone really then the band came back and we did shows. And we went from theaters to arenas and it just stayed. They've been ever so faithful to this band and it's beautiful to do the awards here. It just takes it to a completely different level that they're not in the Roundhouse, they're not in a brewery in London. They're in Tokyo!. It's crazy you know and it's really good fun."

Joe Elliott - "It's brilliant. It's amazing. The important thing for us with this is it was voted by the readers. Not picked by a panel and that means the world to us so thank you very much everybody who voted for us."
