Forbes - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Advice For Other Artists

"Some of the songs off the A list are mostly off Hysteria cause itís an important statement by the band at this time and luckily for us it remains one. Thatís the great thing about it, itís not one of these records that sold really well, then fell off the planet. It stayed alive, the way Hotel California or Rumours or Zeppelin 4 did. Itís still, I wouldnít say an active record, but actively part of our audiencesí life as much as ours. They buy the shirts for it, itís the go to record for both of us."

Advice For Other Artists

"Weíve conquered a lot of negativity in our career to keep going, having watched some people, including our own, fall by the wayside. So advice, to me, is a minefield of a word. And itís not something I readily throw out there because it doesnít always work with whoeverís reading or listening to what Iíve got to say."

The 'Hysteria 30th Anniversary Edition' was released around the world on 4th August.
