"Evening all and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Great to be with you once again. I hope you've been well since we were last together. What have we got lined up tonight. Sixty minutes of, in my humble opinion, some wonderful music. It is in fairness a bit of a rollercoaster emotional night. Lots of comings and lots of goings. Let's get the show started with the captain fantastic himself. Saying goodbye to the yellow brick road. This is Eton John."
"Yes Sir Elton John bid farewell to his American audience this week by playing his last ever concert in the USA. Though I do believe there's a bit of wiggle room for maybe a residency later on in his life. But for right now touring wise he's done. He played Dodger Stadium where it all really started to happen for him back in 1973. So I thought it apt to play a song from 1973. From that brilliant album that is Goodbye Yellow Brick Road we just heard Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting."
"But hey let's not fight. Let's just rock. This is Montrose."
"And before that we heard Montrose. The wonderful Montrose featuring Ronnie Montrose on guitar and the wonderful Sammy Hagar on lead vocals. From their second album it is the title track Paper Money."
"Yeah it's been a crappy few days actually. Even a crappy few weeks regarding the grim reaper. That pesky guy that comes around and scythes down our heroes. And I didn't even know about this one. This one actually goes back more than a few days. But Nik Turner the legendary saxophonist/wind instrument played for the mighty Hawkwind passed away. A few, well actually probably about two weeks ago I think it is now. Unbelievable really went right under the radar. I didn't see it anywhere until just a couple of days ago. And I thought hey not play that particular tune. It was the first thing I ever heard from them. And I've got a real soft spot for that song. Sung by Lemmy as it happens. From 1972 it is Hawkwind with Silver Machine."
Wilko Johnson/Roger Daltrey
"So sticking with the theme of the pesky grim reaper. Rest in peace Wilko Johnson."
"And before that we heard Wilko with Roger Daltrey. Who pulled him out and said let's make a record together after that cancer scare. And they mde for what was for me in I think it was 2014, maybe 2015, the album of the year. Absolutely wonderful stuff. We heard the title track Going Back Home."
"Yeah it's very sad news indeed about Wilko Johnson. I thought he was gonna live forever after he survived that cancer scare of about 7 years ago. I mean he even starred in the Games Of Thrones for goodness sake. What a wonderful guitarist. He was even getting praise this week on Twitter I think it was from Jimmy Page. We all loved him. I had the great pleasure of seeing Wilko with the Feelgood's at the Sheffield City Hall back in 1976. When there were promoting the Stupidity album. Which had been recorded at the City Hall one year previously. And what a wonderful wonderful show that was. And he was an absolutely brilliant show man. Great guitarist. Wonderful songwriter for the kind of R and B music that he made. So I just wanted to pay tribute to him on this particular show tice. And that's what we just did. We just heard from the Stupidity album the song She Does It Right."
"You are listening to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Coming up yet another lost brother. Or should I say doctor."
Doctors Of Madness
"Now if you're a regular listener of my show. You will know that I am a huge fan of that band that we just heard. I first discovered them in 1976 when they were special guests on a BeBop Deluxe tour. I fell in love with their music that night. And I'm still in live with it to this day. They are the Doctors Of Madness. Who sadly this week lost their drummer Pete DiLemma. Now they did spilt in 1978. Never to be heard of again. Until 2014 when the original line=up got back together for a one-off show that Kid Strange put together which was to promote the life and times of William Burroughs. And on that night I had the great honour of getting up and singing one of those two songs that we just heard. From the album Figments Of Emancipation we just heard Suicide City and Brothers. Rest in peace Pete DiLemma."
"Now I didn't set out for this weeks show to be all doom and drama but it's kind of heading in that direction. Let's keep it flowing. This is Ozzy Osbourne."
"And before that Ozzy Osbourne. What a fantastic bit of work. His second solo album. The title track we heard Diary Of A Madman."
"A very apt title indeed considering the way that this show has gone. I thought I'd throw them in because they were the headliners when I saw the Doctors Of Madness for the first time. It is Bebop Deluxe. They were actually promoting this album in 1976 when I saw them. the album is Sunburst Finish. Bill Nelson letting his Jimi Hendrix shine right through there with the song Crying To The Sky."
"And that my friends is about it for this week. On what has been a very emotional rollercoaster of a show. Stll been a lot of fun brining this music to you. Always has been. Always will be.
"Until next week at exactly the same time I shall leave you with this. Now about 25 years ago myself and the singer of this next band were about to record this song but we literally just ran out of time. He never forgot it. Neither did I. And I'm so happy to be able to play this for you right now. Featuring the wonderful Ricky Warwick. This is the Black Star Riders with the rocking-est version of an old Osmonds song you're ever gonna hear. This is Crazy Horses. Till next week see ya!."
