"Elliott, sporting some cool zippered jackets and ripped jeans, reminisced fondly about the band's circa 1980 show at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh with the Scorpions. Elliott said he and bassist Rick Savage formed the band in the steel town of Sheffield in 1977, inspired by groups like UFO and Queen. Elliott polled the Burgettstown crowd on how many of them were alive in 1977. A show of hands revealed a landslide victory for those who were around then, with Elliott quick to credit the younger ones for keeping the music alive. He recalled seeing the Rolling Stones years ago, where sons, fathers and grandfathers grooved together to “Jumpin' Jack Flash” and said “I hope that happens to us some day."
"All that talk Friday set up Def Leppard's delightful cover of David Essex's “Rock On” that sounded frisky and funky until the last verse got harder-edged and industrial."
