Show Intro

"Greetings my fellow music lovers and all welcome once again to the Joe Elliott Show right here on the magnificent Planet Rock. Great to be with you as always. I've got some fantastic tunes lined up for this one hour solitary hour that we have together. So my question for you right now is Johnny Or Elvis?. This is Ricky Warwick."

Ricky Warwick

"Featuring yours truly on backing vocals but much more importantly some fantastic lead guitar by one Mr. Vivian Campbell. And it's hard to imagine that that album is actually 16 years old now. Now that is Ricky Warwick's second solo album. It is called Love Many Trust Few. The song we heard Johnny Or Elvis?."


"Currently on the road in the UK right now. Albeit with one third of them sat down. Here to turn it on again. It's Genesis."

"And before that we heard Genesis featuring poor old Phil Collins who, he can't hold a stick any more so his son is doing a very able job on the drums. He's having to sit down 'cause he can barely stand after some failed spinal operation. But he's in fine voice and they're giving it one more go around the world to say goodbye to their fans. And no doubt they're playing that song live from the album Duke. We just heard Genesis there with Turn It On Again."


"If you're a fan of classic Styx you're gonna love their new album. It's a really great bit of work. It's called The Crash Of The Crown. We just heard their wonderful song called Common Ground."

The Who

"Right here are The Who featuring Pete Townshend who obviously as a little boy ate all his carrots."

"And before that we heard the mighty Who. Taken from the soundtrack of the documentary. If you will rockumentary, The Kids Are Alright. It's a stereo version of the song I Can See For Miles."

Thin Lizzy

"I opened tonight's proceedings with Johnny Or Elvis and we're closing out part one of tonight's show with Johnny The Fox. Well, a song from the album johnny The Fox. Haven't heard that song in years. It is Thin Lizzy with Boogie Woogie Dance."

"You're listening to The Joe Elliott Show on the wonderful Planet Rock. Coming up The Rolling Stones, they're gonna get their ya yas out. Ooer missus."

The Rolling Stones

"And before that we heard The Rolling Stones with one of the most brilliant live performances ever committed to tape. It is from Get Yer Yas Yas Out. It is the phenomenal Midnight Rambler."

"Not an artist that I have featured much on my show over the years. And more's the pity because he is a phenomenal talent is Steve Miller. And there from arguably his most successful record is the title track. It is Fly Like An Eagle."

Elton John

"Right then time for a little hop skip and a jump down the old yellow brick road. This is Elton John."

"And before that we heard Elton John with a fantastic bit of work from his album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. The song we heard Grey Seal."

David Bowie

"The 2020 remix of a song which was on he album Metrobolist which was originally released in 1970 and originally called The Man Who Sold The World. It is David Bowie. The song Saviour Machine. Some beautiful work from the late great Mick Ronson on that song."

Show Outro

"And that my friends is about it for this week. It's been a real pleasure as always. But hey come on you know that already. 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'm gonna leave you with this. Recorded on New Year's Eve 1979 and didn't see the light of day till Record Store Day 2019. Live from the LA Forum in California. This is Cheap Trick with Surrender. Until next week see ya!."
