Hysteria 30th Anniversary - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Best Band Of All Time

"Best band of all time?. Well for me, it's Mott The Hoople. I don't know why, it's just there's something about them that I love."

David Bowie

"Of course, I'm a huge fan of David Bowie, but he's not a band. And T. Rex were essentially just a vehicle for Marc Bolan and I'm a huge fan of his early work, I didn't like the latter stuff. Bowie barely ever put a foot wrong, except maybe in the 80s. Which was difficult for a lots of bands from the 70s, artists from the 70s."

Mott The Hoople

"But Mott The Hoople for me were just. I don't know what it was, I - they caught me at the right time. I just loved their early work on Island, I love the stuff they did when they went commercial after Bowie gave them 'All The Young Dudes'."

"I'm still a huge fan of Ian Hunter. Queen, I love Queen. Queen were just a phenomenal band. And I love Led Zeppelin, but I think for me, my favourite band of all time it's goota be Mott The Hoople."

The 'Hysteria 30th Anniversary Edition' was released around the world on 4th August.
