Joe talked about playing older songs at VIVA! Hysteria, the current setlist, the Gunter Glieben Glouten Globen intro by Mutt Lange, touring with KISS and Phil playing on stage with them. And some kids in studio sing Happy Birthday to him.

Joe revealed he's followed up his KISS intro in Holmdel a couple more times since.

Chaz & AJ - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Touring With KISS?

"Hilarious. They're great man. They're the easiest band in the world - one of the best things we've ever - toured with these guys. Sweethearts, you know Phil got up on stage with them in Atlantic City in full regalia. It's on YouTube you should check it out. They did Deuce and he's only the second guy in forty years to ever actually do this. I think Joe Perry from Aerosmith was the other guy. I've been introducing them. I've been doing the 'You Wanted The Best, You Got The Best'. I've been doing that two or three times. We have fun with these guys they're great. We travel together occasionally. We hang out in the corridors."

"It's really a good time and musically it's a nice match. We're not identical, they're a lot more theatrical than we are but it's a good blend. they get to wear the make up we don't. We can if we want but we leave it to the boss. They're great guys like I said it's a really good night. Bang for your buck you know you've got two bands that have sold - I don't know how many hits we've had together but plenty. It's fun which makes it that much easier to do."
