Joe Elliott - Pre-Rock Of Ages Speech

"You didn't think we were going anywhere did you?. I mean really. We've got a few minutes left. We'd like to spend them with you the best way that we can. Which is be back here doing what we've been doing for the best part of what is it now?. 42 years. F**king hell. But look at this!. Look at this!. It's been a long time since we started out and as you guys know this band has been through some shit. It's always come through the other end with a smile on its face. And nobody epitomises that spirit more than this boy at the back here. Stand up Rick Allen!. Stand up!. An as always he will introduce this one for ya!."
