The Joe Elliott Show - Quotes

Show Intro

"Evening all and welcome. A very big rock and roll welcome to the Joe Elliott show right here on Planet Rock. We have sixty minutes of fantastic music for you tonight. Starting off with the cracked actor himself mister David Bowie."

Down 'n' Outz

"Right time to get a little violent know what I mean?. This is the Down 'n' Outz."

"No, I am not about to make some life changing negative announcement. I just really, really like the song. A song once covered by Murray Head and Roger Daltrey, that is though the version by Gary Brooker ex of Procul Harem the song called Say It Ain't So Joe. And before that from The Further Adventures Of...we heard the Down 'n' Outz with Violence."

Show Outro

"I have to confess that I had to look up the name of that band. The initials Ccs actually stands for the Collective Consciousness Society and is a group that was put together by Mr. Mickie Most. And featured a lot of session musicians such as the band Blue Mink and Herbie Flowers who would go on to play with David Bowie and T. Rex. The song Brother you may remember if you're of a certain age was the countdown for the Top 40 for many years. As was one of their other hits. A remake of Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love which was used for the Top of The Pops theme for many, many years."

"And before that we heard Herman Brood. Pronounced Broat but spelt Brood and his Wild Romance with a song from 1979 which was a huge hit in Holland. And I know that because when we were working there in 1984 and 1985 on the Hysteria album. It was still played almost every day on Dutch radio. A song called Saturday Night."

"Which brings this weeks show to end folks. Been a pleasure as always. I shall be back with you next week at the same time. Until then how about we go out on a little bit of uptempo new wave. From The Single Collection this is the Boomtown Rats. Featuring of course the indefatigable Mr. Bob Geldof with Mary Of The 4th Form. Until next week see ya!."
