Weekend Brekkie - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

UK Storms

"It was pretty grim actually. I felt bad for our crew because the first gig's here tonight in Dublin and they were on a boat from Hollyhead to here. And I was thinking rather you than me boys. Rather you than me. Yeah I mean grown men will weep in those situations. They really will."

The Early Days

"When we first started out we were playing in front of three men and a dog and they let the dog in free."

Sheffield/Dublin Show

"When you play Sheffield. You know your birth town. Your home town and your Mum's there and everybody else. Aunties and Uncles and all. You're looking at kids and going. I used to go to school with you. You know and all this kind of stuff. It's different to just playing a regular gig somewhere. So I mean tonight/ I mean I've been living in Dublin for many, many years. So tonight's another like home town gig for me. So I've got like - arms folded, go on then impress me!. I've got all my friends coming here."
