Show Intro

"Greetings one and all and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. The only rock station you ever need to hear. We've got about sixty mites to blow away those January blues. Let's get it on. This is The Tubes."

The Tubes

"Wonderful way to start the show. That is The Tubes from 1979. Produced by Mr. Todd Rundgren. The album is Remote Control. The song TV Is King."

Stevie Lange

"Now here's a song that's been covered by many a rock lady. But to get even remotely close to the original they'd have to have a hell of a voice. And this lady was my first ever vocal coach. These days she's known as Stevie Vann. Back then she was Stevie Lange."

"And before that Stevie Lange. These days she's Stevie Vann. But back then when she was married to Robert John Mutt Lange Def Leppard's producer, she was also my first ever vocal coach. I bet you haven't heard that for a long time. The song is called Remember My Name."

Roger Taylor

"Taken from a collection called The Lot because that's literally what it is. Every single thing that that gentleman ever recorded. as a solo artist. That gentleman is Roger Taylor. Great bit of work we just heard there a song called Life Changes."

"Right showing the world that Phil Collen wasn't the only gentleman to own one of those poxy little drum machines this is The Who."

"And before that I called them poxy little drum machines but they do have their use. I mean look at In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins is a great example. And there's another one. It really does develop into a wonderful song. It is The Who from the album It's Hard with Eminence Front."

Neil Young

"When he's good he's good. When he's great he's amazing. That is one of the latter category songs to me. It is Neil Young from the album Harvest Moon. The song is War Of Man."

"You are listening to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Coming up we're gonna pay tribute to another fallen warrior who's had his wings clipped this week."


"And before that I played Budgie because once again that pesky grim reaper has been around and taken another one of our wonderful, wonderful musicians. Only 71 years young. Burke Shelley from Budgie. Wow. I saw them about four times live. They were absolutely phenomenal. They were kind of like a Welsh Rush I suppose. Three piece he had the same high voice as Geddy Lee. Played bass. They had some great songs. Of course Metallica have covered at least two or three of their tunes. And the one that's mos famous is the one that we just heard. From the album Never Turn Your Back On A Friend. We heard Breadfan."

Second Coming

"That's a band you've probably never heard of that were born out of a band that you definitely probably never heard of. But back in 1992 myself and Phil Collen were huge fans of a band called Peace And Silence who we crossed paths with quite often. Guess where, yes around the Seattle area of America. 1992 it was. The original band were Peace And Silence. They didn't really take off which was really bizarre because they were one of the better grunge bands. But when they spilt some of the guys carried on under the name of Second Coming. And that is who we just heard. From the album of the same name we just heard the song Confessional."


"Right well Jimmy Page liked them. In fact he liked them so much he signed them to Led Zeppelin's Swansong Records. This is Detective."

"And before that we heard Detective. Signed to Led Zeppelin's Swansong label. Featuring Michael Des Barres on lead vocals. Possibly best known as the stand in for Robert Palmer when Power Station played live at the Live Aid gig back in 1985. The song that we heard One More Heartache."


"Now that's quite possibly another band that you've never heard of. But I'm sure by listening to them you can actually tell, and they'd be the first to admit it, that they were huge fans of the likes of Cheap Trick and The Beatles. It is a band called Swag from an album called Catch All. The song we heard featuring one of the greatest drum re-intros that you will ever hear on record. The song is She's Deceiving."

Show Outro

"And that my friends is about it for this week. I hope we've helped blow away some January blues for ya I shall be back with you next week at exactly the same time. So please don't touch that dial."

"Until then I shall leave you with this. Now we all know that the likes of Frampton Comes Alive, Strangers In The Night and of course Live And Dangerous are often lauded as the best live albums of all time. And rightfully so. But there's another one that never seems to get mentioned that should do. So let's re-familiarize ourselves with it. it is, drum roll please, No Sleep Till Hammersmith. You got it yes. This is Motorhead and Ace Of Spades. Until next week see ya!."
