RTL - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

"I was hired mainly because I had a great record collection, not because I could sing. I was in the band for five weeks before they can buy a microphone. There are no hearing itself. It was just a bunch of kids. Sav knew Pete, Pete and I knew so I met Sav. They took Tony and became a small band. Pete met Steve and brought him. Our little band became more important and after two, three, four years, it became the group. It happened in a year and a half or so. Rick arrived in 1978, it was like that until Phil join us in 1982. became Group 1 Group 2. When we started, it was just not to hang around the streets. group Let's go and see what happens give. And it went pretty well."
