DEF LEPPARD's JOE ELLIOTT Sings On New Doctors Of Madness Song

Def Leppard 2018. Joe Elliott/Kid Strange

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott has contributed to new songs by the Doctors Of Madness.

He debuted one of the songs earlier tonight on his weekly Planet Rock radio show.

The first new music by the band in 40 years and first mentioned by Joe during one of his shows in late April.

The new song titled 'Make It Stop' features Richard 'Kid' Strange on lead vocals as well as a female singer. Joe contributes backing vocals.

The new music has yet to have a release date.

He had attended their final ever London show at the 100 Club in March 2018 just before DL's own show at the Royal Albert Hall.

In October 2014 Joe performed with the band for the first time during one of their reunion shows at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall (where the above photo comes from).

He paid tribute to their bassist Colin 'Stoner' Bentley in November 2014 after his death.

19th May 2018 - Joe Elliott Quotes

"So just before I jumped on the big iron bird that flew me all the way to New York, I had the great pleasure of adding some backing vocals to a brand new song by one of my favourite ever bands the Doctors Of Madness. I've spoken to the good doctor himself, Mr. Richard 'Kid' Strange, and he said yeah go for it. So ladies and gentleman this is a Planet Rock exclusive. The first brand new Doctors Of Madness song in 40 years. Feast your ears on this."

"And before that absolutely brand spanking, and I mean that. It's only been finished three days. That was when the final mix was delivered. It's the Doctors Of Madness' first brand new song in 40 years. Please somebody release this thing. It is called Make It Stop."

21st April 2018 - Joe Elliott Quotes

Show Intro

"Evening all, welcome once again. It is the Joe Elliott show on the wonderful Planet Rock. What a busy week it has been at Elliott Towers since we were last together. We have been mixing some live Def Leppard for a future release. No more details. Gotta keep it secret. I've also been moonlighting on some brand new music from the Doctors Of Madness. Yes I've been helping Richard Strange out on a couple of new songs. And I had the boys over from the Down 'n' Outz. We've been working on album number three coming out hopefully some time next year. To get us in the mood here's some old Down 'n' Outz."

Doctors Of Madness

"As I mentioned at the top of the show. I was moonlighting this week with the Doctors Of Madness on one of a couple of new songs they've written. Now all we've gotta do is figure out a way to get them released. So if there's anybody in record world land that's a big fan of the Doctors and wants to release their song. Get in touch. We just heard there though from 1978, their third and final album Sons Of Survival. The title track."
