Team Rock - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Deal Negotiations

"We were just very fortunate that the people there [at Universal] at the moment were very onside to doing this deal. We sat down with them, the royal 'we' being Howard and Mike Kobayashi, our manager, and basically just batted the stuff back and forth until we all settled on what we thought was a fair deal. So it's been on the go for a while, but this particular one that we've all signed off on, probably a year, maybe."

Using Spotify

"At the moment, I'm using Spotify. If I can't be part of the problem, then I can be part of the solution! I pay my subscription fee, I'm listening to the records and if I like anything I hear, I go out and buy it."
