The Morning Jolt - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

2015 Studio Album

"Yeah we're straight back in the studio. It's not just vocals there's all sorts of stuff to do like guitar solos but we've got all the backing tracks pretty much nailed on about 16 songs. So we're looking at hopefully putting a record out for about Springtime next year."

Vivian's Health

"In fairness to him he's up and down but he's actually quite up at the moment. He's playing great. He looks like he's having a lot of fun out there on stage. He doesn't have the big long curls any more but they'll come back. And he's in good spirits, that's the important thing. So he's fighting this thing which is Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He said to us - because we said like why don't you just take the summer off you know, and he's like No, no for me mentally this is as much mental as physical I've got to do this. So you know we're right behind him."

Summer Tour 2015

"It's been brilliant. It's been really, really good. It's like the camaraderie backstage is fantastic. So far Phil's already been in Gene's gear flying up through the truss you know during sound check just for fun."
