Show Intro

"Evening all and welcome once again to the Joe Elliott show right here on the the wonderful Planet Rock. What do we have for you tonight. Well, sixty minutes of what I consider great music. So if you've been waiting, wait no longer for this is the Doctors Of Madness."

Doctors Of Madness

"Taken from their 1976 debut album Late Night Movies, All Night Brainstorms that is the Doctors Of Madness with a song called Waiting and if you are a fan of the band. Make s note in your diary for the 8th of May for they are releasing a retrospective box set called Perfect Past which features all three of their studio albums. Well worth buying because it's got B-Sides and rare live tracks etc. Can't wait myself."

Ricky Warwick

"Now as you may be well aware. The Black Star Riders are currently on tour in the UK in support of their third and most recent album Heavy Fire. So let's go back 15 years and see what Ricky Warwick was up to. And we will have his fellow Black Star Rider Scott Gorham introduce this one for ya."

"And before that Ricky Warwick from his debut solo album Tattoos & Alibis back in 2001 I think it might have been or 2002. It's that long ago now I can't even remember. But it did feature yours truly on bass and as I mentioned at the top of the show, Scott Gorham on guitar. Title track Tattoos & Alibis."

Ian Hunter

"Gonna dedicate that to the memory of Mr. Richie Anderson who passed away earlier this week. Richie was the crew chief for Mott The Hoople and for the Hunter/Ronson band back in 1975. In fact Ian knew Richie long before he knew the rest of the Mott guys. So that's how far back they go. And from an album called Tilting The Mirror which is I think disc number 29 out of the 30 in Ian Hunter's current box set Stranded In Reality. That is from 1981. A leftover if you like from the Short Back 'n' Sides sessions. Ian Hunter with a song called Na Na Na."


"Now, this is not rubbish, it is Garbage."

"And before that we heard Garbage from the album Bleed Like Me with Right Between The Eyes."

Alice Cooper

"Fellow Planet Rock presenter and king of shock rock Alice Cooper. From an album called The Eyes Of Alice Cooper which is the only album I've ever seen get a 10 star review. It's a fantastic album. The song we just heard Man Of The Year."

"You are listening to the Joe Elliott show on the wonderful Planet Rock. It's time for a little break and when we come back, we're gonna be plunger into darkness with UFO."


"And before that we heard UFO from their 1977 breakthrough album Lights Out with the very wonderful Love To Love."

Read Joe's mention of the Brian Johnson TV Show filming.

Graham Parker & The Rumour

"Now here singing about every rock star's fantasy. This is Graham Parker."

"And before that we heard Graham Parker & The Rumour from the Mutt Lange produced Heat Treatment album with Hotel Chambermaid."

Eddie & The Hotrods

"Well were they rock, were they funk, were they new wave?. Who cares?. They were amazing. What a bundle of energy their lead singer Barry Manters was. That is Eddie & The Hotrods with Do Anything You Wanna Do."

Electric Boys

"OK put on your kaftan and light up the incense. This is the Electric Boys."

"And before that we heard the Electric Boys from Funk-O-Metal Carpet Ride with All Lips N' Hips."

Elton John

"From the phenomenal 1973 double album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road that is Elton John. I don't know what we'll call that, the hooligan anthem?. Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting."

Show Outro

"Well Saturday night may indeed be alright for fighting but I prefer a cup of Tea myself. And I'm off to put the kettle on because that my friends is about it for this week. It's been a pleasure as always. I shall be back with you next week at the same time god willing."

"Until then I'm gonna leave you with Jeff Lynne and E.L.O. from the album Face The Music this is Poker. Until next week see ya!."
