"Evening all and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the magnificent Planet Rock. How are you all feeling?. Well if you are feeling anything like me you're feeling pretty good because you may already have heard but Def Leppard have a new album out. Our first album in seven years. It's coming out on the 27th May. It is called Diamond Star Halos. We've been sitting on it for a year because we didn't want to release it right in the middle of a pandemic. But seeing as it all seems to be clearing a little bit we thought now is the right time. And let's be honest you didn't really think that I wasn't gonna play this song tonight did you."
Note - Joe talked about the new album and gave some promo video news.
Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott played new single Kick during his weekly radio show and revealed videos have been filmed for the Diamond Star Halos album.
"Now on the new album there's a couple of special guests. One of them is the fantastic bluegrass country singer Alison Krauss. Who obviously you're probably aware of for her work with Robert Plant. She sings on two tracks. But we also have used the extremely brilliant Mike Garson. The avant garde jazz pianist that I first discovered in 1973 when he joined The Spiders From Mars as a fifth member if you like for that particular album. Now an avant garde jazz pianist working in Def Leppard. What could possibly go wrong?. Well the answer is nothing. Here's the proof. Listen to this from Aladdin Sane. This is what Mike Garson can do when he throws his chops on an old Rolling Stones song."
"And also from 1973 David Bowie before that. From the album Aladdin Sane. Featuring the magnificently out there Mr. Mike Garson on piano with a cover of The Rolling Stones classic Lets Spend The Night Together."
"Well I haven't heard that for a while. Sounds absolutely amazing doesn't it. That's Alice Cooper. Fellow presenter on Planet Rock. From the album Billion Dollar Babies from 1973 with the wonderful Generation Landslide."
"OK so anybody out there in these troubled times looking for a little bit of peace of mind. You can't really go far wrong with Boston."
"And before that we heard Boston from their eponymously titled debut album back in 1976 I think it was with Peace Of Mind."
"Thought I'd give that a spin this week. We've announced the album and just a few weeks before that we announced the fact that tour is back on that had been postponed since 2020 is finally gonna take place starting in Atlanta, Georgia on the 16th June. And I wanted to play that because honestly it's my favourite ever Motley Crue song. They've got some wonderful stuff. You listen to their greatest hits. It's undeniable. But for me that is an absolutely magnificent bit of work. It's from an album called Genration Swine. The song is called Glitter."
Note - Joe then gave a little bit of UK tour news.
Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott revealed the band plan to tour the UK sometime in 2023 during his weekly radio show.
"You are listening to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Coming up a fantastic tribute to Led Zeppelin from a fantastic female vocalist."
"And before that Beth Hart from an album called A Tribute To Led Zeppelin which does exactly what it says on the tin. Some great covers but for me that's my favourite. It is a beautiful rendition of the tune The Rain Song."
"One of those two gentleman has now got his own show on Planet Rock. Lord Coverdale. Welcome on board sir. Where have you been?. Should have been here years ago. He is the perfect host ins't he. What a great radio voice Lord Coverdale has. And his stories are to die for darling. They really are. But there he is with his old buddy Jimmy Page from the Coverdale Page album with Pride And Joy."
"Right here's a couple of glam-tastic tunes from a couple of glam-tastic artists. Starting off with Roy Wood's Wizzard."
"And before that the song that Ian Hunter once said saved his life in 1973. And I think personally it inspired the song that we just heard. It is Wizzard. It's taken from a collection called 25 Years Of Rock And Roll. The song we heard See My Baby Jive."
Mott The Hoople
"Completely bonkerziod stuff there from the writing genius that is Ian Hunter. It's from the 1974 Mott album which was simply called The Hoople with Pearl 'N' Roy (England)."
"And that my friends is about it for this week. It's been a real pleasure as always. Especially because at the top of the show I got to play some brand new Def Leppard. I don't normally indulge very much as you well know. But when you haven't had an album out for seven years I think you're allowed to just a little bit."
"So anyway until next week I shall leave you with this. From the 1974 album that is Too Much Too Soon, as proved to be. This is the New York Dolls and Babylon. Until next week see ya!."
