"Evening all and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Always a pleasure. Great to be with you. We've gt 60 minutes of, in my humble opinion, some wonderful music coming up. Now I'm currently just back in the door actually. 'Cause I flew down to Los Angeles to watch The might Who at the Hollywood Bowl. Pete Townshend on fire. Roger Daltrey at 78 years old. Quite possibly the best I have ever heard him sing live. He was just superb. It was a fantastic night. . It was a wonderful couple of days. I went with Phil and we had the best time. Hung out for a little while. Saw Bill Curbishley who manages The Who and has done since I was a little boy. He's a wonderful wonderful guy. Also managed Billy Idol and this band that we're gonna start the show off with this week. Who have just been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. So how about a really great big congratulatory Hurrah! for Judas Priest."
"Yes I think the stigma of being what they call a heavy metal band over the nominatory factors of being accepted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. But since the fan vote came along I think it kind of took the stuffing out of it all. More and more bands that would normally not get nominated are being nominated. And more and more of those bands are being inducted. And congratulations at last to Judas Priest. Which is a band Def Leppard toured with 42 years ago. And we used to go watch them at Sheffield City Hall before that. So happy that they finally got in. I wanted to play that even though it's not a song they wrote. But it's a song they covered and made a fantastic job of. It's written by Joan Beaz of all people. A kind of a New York folker. Along the lines of Bob Dylan but what a tune. It is from the live album Unleashed In The East. It is Diamonds And Rust."
Mike Campbell And The Dirty Knobs
"Now I mentioned The Who in the intro of the show. We're gonna hear them later on. Here's the band that opened for them. And I've been wanting to see this band live and the opportunity was there. I had no choice but to turn up early and go and watch Mike Campbell, and 'scuse the French, The Dirty Knobs."
"And before that we did hear indeed the man himself Mike Campbell And The Dirty Knobs. Excuse me, I can't...I mean does he know, he's American, does he really know what he's saying?. Let's hope so. The album is External Combustion. The song we heard Wicked Mind."
Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers
"Yes for those of you not in the know. Mike Campbell was Tom Petty's long term musical partner. For the best part of 50 years through Mudcrutch and of course The Heartbreakers. And he played that song that we just heard. And he's well entitled to because he co wrote a lot of tunes with Tom. And it was great to hear them played live in front of so many people. When you think you'll probably never hear them again. And Mike Campbell's voice tonally is almost identical to that of Tom Petty's. So it really really worked. That is Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers from the album Full Moon Fever with Runnin' Down A Dream."
"So from cheeky double entendres to doubling down maybe of the roulette wheel. From Casino Royale original soundtrack this is Chris Cornell."
"And before that Chris Cornell. The original soundtrack. It is Casino Royale. The song we heard You Know My Name."
"So last week when I played the Ozzy song I kinda did a bit of a disservice to all the musicians that played on there. By just purely naming three of four guitarists that played on it. The amount of guests that are on the new Ozzy Osbourne album is absolutely just top draw. I'm just gonna read them out to you. Listen to this. Andrew Wyatt, who produced the album. Zakk Wylde, Jeff Beck, Tony Iommi, Mike McCready, Eric Clapton, Josh Homme, Robert Trujillo, Duff McKagan, Chris Chaney, Chad Smith and the late great Taylor Hawkins on drums. Even David Campbell on string arrangements. Who's Beck's Dad. So Odelay to that. Brilliant stuff. My favourite song off the album right now. It is from the album Patient Number 9. The song is Nothing Feels Right. And as I said last week it really is heavy metal Beatles. It's wonderful stuff."
"You are listening to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Coming up as promised couple of Who tracks. One of them with a bit of a twist."
"And before that from Quadrophenia also. Which by the way when they did this the other night at the Hollywood Bowl worked brilliantly. The orchestration Pete Townshend did on original album just worked so well with a real orchestra. Stunning stuff. Absolutely stunning. The song we just heard 5:15."
"Well I did say it was a bit of a twist. It's certainly a Who song but it's not The Who. In fact it is on drums Carmine Appice once of Vanilla Fudge and Rod Stewart. The late great Huw Lloyd-Langton once of Hawkwind on guitar. The wonderful Rick Wakeman of course on keyboards. And yours truly singing. It is from a tribute Who album called Who Are You. The song Love Reign O'er Me."
"Now also featuring Rick Wakeman and a song that I really can't stop playing. And I mean can't stop playing. I must have played this song three times a day for the last couple of weeks. I think I need therapy. But in a good way. This is Yes."
"And before that, I've got to listen to it again later on. Yes I really just love this song. I've been going through the Yes catalogue chronologically and just got stuck on this one. It's like the needle won't lift. It is the title track of their 1977 album, and what an album, Going For The One."
Doctors Of Madness
"Continuing their trend of releasing their work digitally. Just out the Doctors Of Madness there. From the album Figments Of Emancipation. Now available digitally for the first time ever. It was originally released in 1977. The song that we just heard a wonderful bit of work. My favourite Doctors song of all time. The song is Out."
"And that my friends is about it for this week. It's been a real pleasure as always. I shall be back with you next week at exactly the same time. So don't touch that dial. For more of the same only a little bit different will be coming your way in exactly 7 days time.
"So until then let's go out with this one. From the album Black Rose. This is Thin Lizzy and the Toughest Street In Town. Till next week see ya!."
