The Joe Elliott Show - 16th December 2017 Quotes
"And I'm not just playing it because I love it. I played it because last night, along with 'Up The Pool' and bits of 'Locomotive Breath', I performed that song with Ian Anderson in Bradford Cathedral to raise some much needed money for some church restoration. A good thing to do just before Christmas don't you think."

Ian Anderson @jethrotull and guests was a great night enjoyed by all. A meow of thanks to them for bringing the show and helping raise funds for Foundation 2020. Afterwards @BishopPaulB and @tremlett_andrew chatted to Ian and the Reverend George Pitcher in the Chapter House. pic.twitter.com/dv2t5sghmU— Badger the Cat (@DCathCat) December 15, 2017
