Forbes - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

"And then all of a sudden the fans get involved and then we become interested because it literally is about the important people in our lives, which is our audience. And even though, as we all know, the fan voting is one vote our of a thousand votes or whatever it's the one vote the other 999 can't help but take notice of because it's all over the world. It's in every magazine, on every website, every radio station."

Who Would induct Def Leppard?

"We haven't even thought about it. You're the first person who's brought it up. It's the first time I've actually thought about who we would have induct us because we've been nominated, we're not in. If and when that thing comes in, whatever day you hear in December, that's when we'll sit down and go, "Alright, who do we hope we could get to do it."
