View London - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

We did write a song, well… we did start a song off while we were in Vegas. We thought we'd have more time to do it but we got one song on the go. We're constantly writing - sometimes they get finished, sometimes they get left behind and sometimes they'll get finished next year. If we wake up with an idea, you don't let it slip away. You either write it down or hum something into a microphone. If our eyes are open, we're working somewhere or other."

"At this point in time we're promoting and letting the movie do all the work. Let's not forget that we've got a guitarist (Vivian Campbell) who's in recovery from cancer and Phil's (Collen - lead guitarist of Def Leppard) just had an operation on his hand so he's in a cast for eight weeks so it's either me and Sav playing guitar or we don't do it at all."
