The Joe Elliott Show - 24th May Quotes

"Evening all and welcome to Elliott Towers in not so sunny Dublin where the Def Leppard recording and writing session is moving ahead very, very swiftly. Some great stuff coming out of that studio this week, amazing. I'll tell you more about that later on."

"It may well be burning in London but it's freezing in Dublin. It's been cold and wet and horrible most of this week. But that's great for work because we get in the studio, we shut the door, we shut the curtains and we get on with it."

MyGlobalMind - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

"Its a bit of everything really. The one thing that Leppard will probably never ever do again is an album that sounds like "High n Dry" all the way through. That was 1981, it was thirty two years ago people have to get over it. Its gone. Robert Plant is never going to sing like he did on Zeppelin 1 because he doesn't want to. There will still be the odd song that you will hear it and go "That could have been on High n Dry" or "Pyromania" What we are really doing is trying not to sound like anything, just writing songs that we feel are good songs and not anchor them to some past glory. Its much more important that the songs are good and it doesn't really matter if they have any reference to our back catalog or not. It is a rock and roll record for sure."
