"Greetings my fellow music lovers and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Great to be with you as always. In a week where the hand of god finally met his god, but let's stay away from the football because my team are languishing at the bottom of the Premiership. So woe is me and a few other folks in Sheffield. Let's head across the Atlantic shall we. This is Rod The Mod.
"Yes The Faces were just about done by 1975. That's Rod Stewart from the album Atlantic Crossing with Stone Cold Sober."
"So from one fantastic singer to another. This, featuring Paul Rodgers, is Bad Company."
"And before that Bad Company from their third album Run With The Pack back in 197...ahh let me think about this. 1976 I believe it was. The track Sweet Lil' Sister."
"ooh I do like a bit of Razamanaz. Which is just as well because that's the title of the album.It is Nazareth with one of their huge hits from the 70s called Bad Bad Boy."
"Well this next gentleman didn't quite make it into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2019. Much to my annoyance and disbelief. And he didn't even get nominated this year. So let's hope that he gets back into the framework next year. This is Todd Rundgren.
And before that we heard Todd Rundgren. Snubbed by the hall of fame once again. From the album Something Anything with the fantastic hit I Saw The Light.
"They were singed to The Beatles' Apple label. They were produced by Sir Paul McCartney and George Harrison. In fact they would work with George Harrison on the Concert For Bangladesh at Madison Square Garden back in 1970 I believe it was. They are Badfinger. Fantastic band. From the album Straight Up the song we just heard, beautiful bit of work called Day After Day."
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, we're off to India with The Psychedelic Furs."
The Psychedelic Furs
"And before that we heard The Psychedelic Furs. Now get this right I had two songs lined up by The Psychedelic Furs and I wasn't sure which one to pick. And as I was umming and ahing over which one my email went ping!. And in came an email from Richard Butler the singer of The Psychedelic Furs. Who I met a couple of years ago. We swapped emails and he sent me an email out of the blue saying hey we've got a new album out and I wanna send you a copy of it. And I said you won't believe this Richard but I'm actually looking at two song titles of yours right now in a list of tracks that I'm gonna play on my next show. And I don't know which one to pick. So why don't you pick it and he did. He picked that song from the album The Psychedelic Furs. The song is India."
"Featuring a very cool sample of the MC from the Woodstock festival back in 1969. That is Robert Plant from 1990. The album is Manic Nirvana. The song we heard Tie Dye on the Highway."
"Right then sadly back to the Joe Elliott obituary show once again. This is The Strawbs."
"And before that we heard The Strawbs. Now just a few days before this show goes out we lost Tony Hooper aged 77. A founder member of The Strawbs along with Dave Cousins, Hudson Ford and of course Rick Wakeman who was with the band for three albums before he jettisoned off to bigger and more proggy things with Yes. But Tony Hooper as I say was an original member of The Strawbs. He sang lead vocals on that particular track. It is from an album called From the Witchwood. The song we heard I'll Carry On Beside You. Rest in peace Tony Hooper."
Note - According to news stories he was actually 81.
Kyle John Suckling
"That my dear friends is a gentleman called Kyle John Suckling. Once the elad singer in a band called The Clan and what a singer. aThe Clan featured Brian Robertson ex-Thin Lizzy on guitar and Paul Guerin. That fantastic guitarist from the Down 'n' Outz and of course The Quireboys. Now Paul in his spare time, because yes neither The Quireboys or the Down 'n' Outz could tour right now for obvious reasons. Has been shooting some videos in his spare time. And he has shot a video for that song for this project he's put together called Tin Pan Alley which you can access through the GoFundMe website. And he's doing this to raise money for the NHS. So that gave me a very heartfelt kind of obligation to want to play that song this week. Anybody that's trying this hard to raise money for the NHS is in my good books. So well done Paul. As I said the artist is Kyle John Suckling. It's from an album called I Am A Tree. The song Medicine Man."
"Right time to pack your bags and check into the Hotel California. This is The Eagles."
"And before that we heard The Eagles from the album Hotel California. The 40th anniversary re-release. It is that fantastic tune featuring that great guitar riff by Joe Walsh. Life In Fast Lane."
"There's a hell of a lot to choose from but I actually think that that is my favourite ever Be-Bop Deluxe track. it is from the album Modern Music. It is Down On Terminal Street."
"And that my 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 for more of the same only just a little bit different.
"So until then I'll leave you with this one. It is from an album called Great Gonzos The Best Of Ted Nugent. This is Just What The Doctor Ordered. Stay safe out there people. "
