The Sound 100.3 - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Award/Kings of Chaos

"yes I'm presenting an award to Ozzy Osbourne. Yeah I'm gonna do a song with the Kings Of Chaos. God willing it all goes to plan yeah."

The Show

"Well that's why we do these things you get to hang out with people that you've known. And you also get to meet people that you've gone, Oh my god there's Jeff Lynne. I wanna see Jeff Lynne, I wanna meet Jeff Lynne you know. Or you know I just saw - oh there's Duff McKagan. I just saw Julian Lennon for the first time since me and him tragically left a nightclub when the sun was coming up a few years ago and I've not seen him since - probably avoiding me. So you get to kind of reacquaint yourself with a few people that you've not seen for a while and catch up and that's a good thing."

The Who London Show

"I'm going over to London next week to do a song with The Who. At Shepherd's Bush Empire for the Teenage Cancer Trust gig that they do on an almost annual basis. So that's something that for me is an incredible bucket list moment."

2015 Studio Album

"And then we get back to work on the Def Leppard record which hopefully will be out by Spring time next year. So not much on then."
