Shredload - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

How's Vivian doing?

"From what I can tell he's doing great. Had sent me an email last night about 45 minutes before we went on saying say hi to my people. And good luck tonight and all that kind of stuff. So he's in good spirits enough to respond to you know - to give me a good wishes message and stuff. He had Stem Cell surgery about a month ago now and as far as I'm aware - this is all I've been told - is that he's on the road to recovery."

"He's gonna be joining us mid-April for a Canadian tour which is when we start up again. So you know as far as I'm aware everything's going really well. I'm not in contact with him on a daily basis because there's nothing more annoying than an email from somebody going how ya doing" how ya doing?."

"So I just leave him alone until he's got something more important to tell us. But it's just an endless round of tests for him now. That's what it is and he's just gotta get on with it and we just have to sit and wait patiently for what we hope is gonna be a - you know a positive outcome."
