The Courier Journal - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Vivian Campbell's Health

"He's happy and contented and seems to be responding really well to his treatment. He appears healthy, he's playing great, he's singing great. We're happy to let him do what he wants to do. We asked him if he wanted some time off and he said, 'No, that would kill me. I want to work.' There's no sympathy vote because he doesn't want one."

New Bands

"There's a great British band that I've got high hopes for, but high hopes is one thing and success is another, a band called The Struts. they've just got the one album out and they sound like Queen."

"Who knows, they could be the next Def Leppard."
