Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott revealed he plans to release his solo cover of Mick Ronson song This Is For You sometime soon.

The version featuring Dick Decent on piano was recorded for a documentary and first played on his 22nd September show. Joe talked about the release plans when airing the song for a second time this past Saturday.

The show is available until next Saturday using the On Demand feature.

The Joe Elliott Show - 27th October Quote

"If you were tuned in a few weeks ago you probably heard that song before. The song written by Annette Peacock and originally recorded by Mick Ronson on his 1975 Play Don't Worry album. That particular version is myself and Dick Decent. You may remember I was telling ya he was Def Leppard's part time keyboard player and big on the local scene round the black country area. He passed away about a month ago but since I've played it I've had so many emails from people saying is it available. Well sadly it isn't actually but it will be pretty soon in a slightly reworked form. I will let you know about that as soon as I have more details. The song This Is For You."

"And before that a song that I recorded with Dick for a Mick Ronson documentary. The old Annette Peacock song that Ronson did on his Play Don't Worry album, a tune called This Is For You."
