Show Intro

"'Aye up. 'Allo and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Sixty minutes of you know what coming your way. Great to be with you once again. Now that we are actually allowed into Wales, we're heading off into the valleys. This is Lone Star."

Lone Star

"Well I said into the valleys but really it's Cardiff isn't it, mostly. Lone Star, second album Firing On All Six. The first and only album to feature the wonderful vocals of Mr. John Sloman. And I still can't get my head round the fact that we no longer have Paul Chapman with us. What a great guy he was. What a fantastic guitarist. As can be heard on that song. The wonderful Bells Of Berlin."

Ringo Starr

"And talking of Bells they should have been ringing out not just in Berlin, but all over the world this week because somebody has just had an 80th birthday. Yes, 80 years young. Take a bow Ringo Starr."

"And before that Ringo Starr the solo artist. The first Beatle to actually have a hit single. The song is from 1971 and it is It Don't Come Easy."

The Beatles

"And can you believe to this very day he is still touring with his All-Star's Band. God bless RIngo Starr. 80 years young just a few days ago. There with The Beatles from the album Love. Which is the original soundtrack to the Crique De Soleil show that's been on in Las Vegas now for about ten years. A brilliant remix by Giles Martin. So of Sir George Martin who produced the original version. The song is I Am The Walrus."


"Now here to entertain us with a very sexy French titled song is Rush."

"And before that we heard Rush from 1980. Forty years ago. The album is Permannent Waves. The song we heard Entre Nous."

David Bowie

"I'll tell you what whoever's managing the David Bowie estate is not shy on releasing new material. Albeit of course retrospective because he is no long with us as of four years ago. But this is a fantastic live album. It's called, well it's actually called Ouvrez Le Chien. Which to us Bowie fans we know translates from French into open the dog. Right oh. It's live in Dallas 1995. A fantastic live version of Moonage Daydream which is actually a bonus track. I think it's only available as a digital download for now."

"You are listening to the Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. It's time for a little break, and when we come back, you are invited to take part in the crime of the century."


"And before that Supertramp from their massive breakthrough album in 1974. Crime Of The Century is the album. The song we heard Hide In Your Shell."

Procol Harum

"If I'm right in thinking that was their last ever hit ten years after their first and biggest hit. A song called Whiter Shade Of Pale that introduced the band to the world. The band are Procol Harum. The song we jsut heard magic piece of work called Pandora's Box."

Ian Hunter

"Now in the year 2020 I'm not sure how PC the title of the album this next song comes from is. Discovered on the back of a toilet door apparently by Mr. Mick Ronson. The song itself is all about a night's stay in jail. You naughty boy Ian Hunter."

"And before that Ian Hunter Just Another Night."

The Nazz

"I've always loved that song and it was brilliant to see it played live about two years ago in a little theatre in Monterrey, California by the guy who created it back in 1968. Yes it is Todd Rundgren I'm talking about. That is the original version from his first band The Nazz. The song is Open My Eyes."

The Runaways

"It's often said that the sum is bigger than the parts. It's not very often the other way around. Two members of this next band actually went on to be bigger as solo artists than they ever were in the collective group. Although this band did do pretty well in Japan. This is The Runaways."

"And before that we heard The Runaways who featured in their ranks Joan Jett and Lita Ford. Both of whom have been special guests on Def Leppard tours over the years. In fact Joan Jett was due to be on The Stadium Tour of the US with us and Motley Crue and Poison which has been postponed until next summer. They are The Runaways the debut album of the same name came out in 1976. The song we heard, their most famous bit of work, Cherry Bomb."

The Rolling Stones

"Well I don't know about you but often I change my mind on a weekly basis as to what is my favourite song by any one particular artist. But I must say that song has lived long in the memory to me as my favourite ever Rolling Stones track. It is from the album Beggar's Banquet. It is Street Fighting Man."

Show Outro

"And that my dear friends is about it for this week. It's been a real pleasure as always. I shall be back with you next week at exactly the same time."

"So until then I'll leave you with this. It's from an album called Queen II. Bit of a clue as to who the band are. I think you're gonna like this. This is the Seven Seas Of Rhye. Until next week see ya!."
