Rock Hard - Joe Elliott/Phil Collen Interview Summary

Hellfest 21st June Show

Due to time constraints the band will play the 'Hysteria' album in full first before playing a few extra songs afterwards.

New Music

The band recorded new music during the residency in Las Vegas. The first time they had worked 'together' on material for a long time as the 3 Mirrorball tracks were done as mostly solo efforts.

Future Residency?

Band open to the idea. Phil would prefer to do 'Pyromania' and Joe would like to do one for 'High 'n' Dry'.

Rest Of Interview

Working with Mutt Lange, recording the 'Hysteria' album, living and playing in Las Vegas, French concerts - band haven't been for 17 years due to no offers being made to them to play there.

Thanks to Xav.
