Show Intro

"Evening everyone and welcome to the first Joe Elliott Show of 2023. Right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Great to be with you and after last week's best of 2022. This week's show is equally as eclectic. Which is how I like it. Starting off with Cherie Curry."

Cherie Curry

"Wow what a great and rocky way to get the show started. That folks is one of those bandcamp projects. Which features Cherie Curry the original singer in The Runaways of course. Re-recording one of their classic tunes Cherry Bomb. This time with Marky Ramone and Wayne Kramer from The MC5. Incredible stuff. It's from an EP called Leader Of The Pack. Where yes she actually re-recorded the classic Shangri-Las tune. But I thought I'd go with that one for today. It is the old Runaways tine. Originally from their debut album back in 1976. But that is the re-record of their wonderful tune Cherry Bomb."

Mike Campbell And The Dirty Knobs

"Right sharing with us some of his external combustion. This is Mike Campbell And The Dirty Knobs."

"And before that Mike Campbell And The Dirty Knobs. And try saying that with a straight face. The album is External Combustion. And you all you eagle eared fans of Ian Hunter. You did hear him singing on the second verse of that song. Dirty Job."


"Now if you're a regular listener to my show you may on occasions have heard me in the past singing the praises of Tom Verlaine's Television. I'm a huge fan of the album Marquee Moon. But I have to be honest I never really went any deeper than that. But this week has seen me going full bore. I've been and got about four or five other recordings that I found. And that's the second album I believe. It's an album called Adventure. The song is Foxhole."

The Cars

"Now these next couple of tunes are specifically put together because they compliment each other very well indeed for the style of music that they are. Starting off with The Cars."

"And before that The Cars. I'm sure we're much more familiar with them. From their debut album which was produced by Roy Thomas Baker. Famous of course for producing Queen. The song You're All I've Got Tonight."


"After I left my job in the hideous factory that was Osbournes. For a little while I drove a van for an Iron Mongery firm and I was blessed actually. That I was able to listen to the radio all day. And I remember hearing that song on Radio One. It was never a hit but they played it enough for it to resonate with me for the rest of my life. And I finally got hold of a copy of the album. The album is The Sound of Sunbathing. Good title. The band are the Sinceros. The song is Take Me To Your Leader."

"You are listening to the first Joe Elliott Show of 2023. right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Coming up we're gonna go and take a visit to The Court Of The Crimson King."

King Crimson

"And before that we heard King Crimson. Featuring the very eccentric Mr. Robert Fripp. Who for the last couple of years. Maybe they've stopped now, But has entertained us massively with his wife Toyah Wilcox. With their Sunday lunch time shenanigans. But there he is all serious with the title track of the 1969 debut album of King Crimson. It is The Court Of The Crimson King."

The Honeydrippers

"Wearing his inner Elvis on his sleeve quite proudly. And may be even just a little bit of Bill Haley And The Comets there. That is Robert Plant with a cover of a song originally recorded by a gentleman called Roy Brown. No not Chubby, a different Roy Brown. The album in The Honeydrippers Volume One. And what a shame there was never a volume two. Quite like that stuff. Song called Rockin' At Midnight. Covered by so many poeple including in 1973 on their debut album Montrose."


"Now here's a band I don't think I've ever played on my show before. So it's about time I did. This is Silverhead."

"And before that a band called Silverhead who have a slight connection to Robert Plant in the fact that their guitarist Robbie Blunt would go on and play on Robert's first few solo albums. When Silverhead split Michael Des Barres, the singer, formed a band called Detective who would sign to Swansong. Which was Led Zeppelin's record label. So there ya go. But that is Silverhead from 1972 with the single version of a song called Ace Supreme."

New York Dolls

"Wonderful stuff there from the New York Dolls from their debut album back in 1973. The song is Looking For A Kiss."

Show Outro

"And talking of Ace. what a great link into the last song of this first show of 2023. I shall be back with you next week at exactly the same time.

"So until then here he is. Ace himself. Ace Frehley. From his solo album back in 1978 with Rip It Out. Until next week see ya!."
