Female First - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

New Material/Studio Album

"We are constantly writing, and we didn't want to see those three songs just left lying around waiting for an album to be finished; knowing that we might not make one because of the way that the industry is. We decided to put those tracks on the end of that album, so we had something new to play when we were on tour."

"We are going to be writing; we have got a couple of things written. Now we are in this holding pattern, we are going to let the movie do its thing for a while, and then we are going to write some new songs."

Future Plans/Downtime

"It basically leaves me, Sav and Rick enjoying a bit of time off with the family. If we get creative - which we will - we will write some songs and hopefully that will be a step towards some new music at some stage."
