Ramzine - Online Review Quotes
"On a bitterly cold night I arrived at the Wolver Slade Rooms for what was promising to be a cracking night of rock music, UK style. The Further Adventures of Down ‘n’ Outz were to be played, to what was promising to be a decent, but not sell-out crowd. Featuring Def Leppard‘s front man Joe Elliott and three quarters of the Quireboys treading the boards tonight."
"I’ve never seen Def Leppard live, but thoroughly enjoyed a two song surprise that Joe sprung at a benefit gig at the Birmingham Roadhouse a couple of years ago. Just my luck then that he appeared to be suffering with “laryngitis, broncho-pneumonia or some fuckin’ shit” as he succinctly put it – When asked to turn the vocals up because “we can’t hear you Joe” by a chap at the back of the room. No matter! What I didn’t see coming was the set opener, a cover of Elton John’s ‘Funeral For a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding‘ from his iconic Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album, for which Joe played piano."
