Show Intro

"Evening all and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. It is great as always to be with you once again. What have we got lined up for the next 60 minutes?. Well last week's '80s extravaganza went down so well that I might have to revisit the '80s just for a little bit tonight. But generally speaking it's a bit of everything. And while the big cat sleeps the mice will play."

Down 'n' Outz/Def Leppard 2020 Tour

"Yes while Def Leppard take little bit of a hiatus. We're not doing anything, officially at least, until 1st of May 2020 when we play a huge festival in Mexico City. So I've been doing rake loads of press promoting the new Down 'n' Outz album. Which we have just heard a track from. The album is called This Is How We Roll. The song is Boys Don't Cry."

Last In Line

"So while I've been doing all the press, one of my colleagues has been out on the road promoting his latest album. In fact last night they were in Belfast. This is Last In Line."

"Before that we heard Last In Line from their latest album with Year Of The Gun."


"Wonderful stuff there from Mott. It is from their second album Shouting And Pointing way back in 1976. The song actually covered on the first Down 'n' Outz album ten years ago. The song is Storm."

The Police

"Now as I mentioned at the top of the show we would revisit the '80s just for a little bit. Here we go."

"And before that from the Message In A Box The Complete Collection we heard The Police. Originally the title track of their 1983 album Synchronicity."

The Adventures

"Just like Vivian Campbell hailing from Belfast in Northern Ireland that is The Adventures with a song that was the most played song on BBC Radio 1 in 1988. It is from the album Sea Of Love. The song Broken Land."

"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 go headlong way back into the '70s once again with three specific body parts."

Heads, Hands And Feet

"And before that we heard Heads, Hands And Feet who gave us the likes of Albert Lee on guitar and what a fine fine player he is. And Chas Hodges who would become a mega star just a few years later as one half of Chas And Dave. It is from that magnificent 1971 compilation album El Pea. It is Song For Susie."

Judas Priest

"Well that's not your standard fair for that particular band is it?. No not at all it is from their 1975 album Sad Wings of Destiny. It is Judas Priest with Epitaph."

Dirty Honey

"Right then from the depths of the '70s smack bang up to date with Dirty Honey."

"And before that we heard brand new from Dirty Honey. Their E.P. is just called The Dirty Honey E.P.. The song When I'm Gone."

The Darkness

"Well I have to say the video that accompanies that particular song is probably the best rock video I have seen since Learning To Fly by the Foo Fighters. It is just brilliant. It is The Darkness from their latest album Easter Is Cancelled with a song called Rock And Roll Deserves To Die.Not sure about that boys."

Show Outro

"And that my friends, is about it for this week. It's been a real pleasure as always. I shall be back with you next week at exactly the same time."

"Until then I'm gonna leave you with this. It would be a real shame if rock and roll did deserve to die. In fact it would be a Rock 'n' Roll Damnation. If that's not a clue, I don't know what is. From the album Powerage in 1978 this is AC/DC. Until next week see ya!."
