Show Intro

"Well hello, greetings and welcome to, yes, The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. It is always a pleasure. We have a miserly 60 minutes. One solid hour of some solid rock. Starting off this week with the wonderful Eddie and The Hot Rods."

Eddie and The Hot Rods

"One of the few bands from that era. That era being the mid 70s that I never saw live. Seen enough YouTube clips though and some on Top Of The Pops to know that they were a high energy band. Fantastic stuff there from a collection called The End Of The Beginning The Best Of. That is Eddie and The Hot Rods with Do Anything You Wanna Do."

Tom Petty

"Now suffering from a little bit of Full Moon Fever, well at least it's not COVID, it's Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers."

"And before that Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers from an album called Full Moon Fever. Wonderful album as well. The song Love Is A Long Road."


"They were such a fantastic and eclectic band. That is 10CC. Taken from a compilation called The Complete UK Recordings. Of course it was originally on an album called Sheet Music. Huge hit single for them The Wall Street Shuffle."


"Now here's a band I don't play enough of. I admire them immensely and they live pretty close by. This is U2."

"And before that U2 taken from the collection The Best Of 1990-2000. Theme tune to one of the Batman movies. It is Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me."

Ozzy Osbourne

"Well as if you Ozzy Osbourne fans weren't aware already there's a couple of really cool guests on that particular song. Notably on piano and singing the second verse we have Mr. Elton John. And laying down a fantastic guitar solo we have Slash. It is the title track from Ozzy's album Ordinary Man. Great bit of work."

"You are listening to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Coming up two for the price of one from Cockney Rebel."

Cockney Rebel

"And before that Cockney Rebel featuring the fantastically talented Mr. Steve Harley. From the album Psychomodo. Two tracks that you can't really separate so I thought why not play them both. Sweet Dreams and the title track itself Psychomodo."

The Rolling Stones

"Coming from what we might call their psychedelic period. Peace and love man. That is The Rolling Stones. Love that song. It is from a collection called Through The Past Darkly. It is Dandelion."

Jethro Tull

"If you were listening last week you'll know that I played a classic track from this next band. Also announcing the fact that they just released a brand new album. And I was hoping to be able to play something from it over the next couple of weeks. Well here we are. This is brand new Jethro Tull."

"And before that Jethro Tull who were at the time stable mates with Free on Island Records from their brand new album The Zealot Gene. We heard the song Mrs Tibbets."


"You know what I can still smell the pink label Island Records seven inch single that I bought as an eleven year old when I hear that song. It brings back such fantastic and remarkable memories for me. it is the wonderful Free. Taken from the collection The Free Story. With the immortal My Brother Jake."

Show Outro

"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 what will be my 600th show for Planet Rock. Now that's something worth celebrating."

"So until then please don't touch that dial. Where else would you wanna be anyway. Let's go out as I always like to do on a bit of a stonker. And this one certainly stonks. This is the title track from the Deep Purple album Burn.Until next week see ya!."
