Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott appeared in a Queen documentary in late 2004 and it has been rebroadcast by the BBC.

'The Story Of Bohemian Rhapsody' was shown from 9 to 10pm last night by BBC Four in the UK.

A second documentary and live concert were also shown as part of their Queen night.

This 60 minute documentary was first shown by BBC Three in December 2004.

It tells the story of how the song was written and recorded, the meaning of its lyrics, its influence on other musicians and how the iconic promo video was made.

Brian May and Roger Taylor are featured throughout along with original producer Roy Thomas Baker listening to the master tapes.

Joe is shown very briefly three times (4mins, 36 mins and 49mins in) talking about the songs influence on him, the promo video and the Wayne's World car scene.

View photos from the show below and view the whole documentary via the BBC iPlayer link (UK Only).

The video will be available for 29 more days.

The Story Of Bohemian Rhapsody (2004) - Joe Elliott Quotes

Voiceover - "Axl Rose performed the song at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert after the singer's death in 1991. He was joined by a host of stars who'd grown up listening to Queen."

Joe - "1975, I was working in a factory in Sheffield and daydreaming about wanting to be in a band that could produce material of the quality of Bohemian Rhapsody".

Joe - "I remember watching the video and thinking 'Oh my god, what is this?'".

Joe - "I've been in that car! trust me, With a couple of mates of mine in Sheffield, I have so been there". (movie clip then cuts back to Joe) "And then when the heavy bit kicks in and the heads start going up and down, I nearly wet my pants."
