Voice Over Intro
"T. Rex, Mott The Hoople and David Bowie were just some of the artists who ignited his fuse to make music. His career is celebrated with Induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame as lead singer for Def Leppard. Joe Elliott. Now he's sharing his passion for deep classic rock with stories and music from his personal collection. Welcome to Joe Elliott's Songs From The Vault on Deep Tracks."
"Greetings music lovers and welcome to SiriusXM's Deep Tracks. I'm Joe Elliott and this is Songs From The Vault where for the next sixty minutes or so I'm gonna take you on a little trip through my own personal record collection. Introducing you to some rarities. Maybe telling yuo some stories from the road. A lot of the songs that we're gonna hear are gonna be quite obscure to American listeners because growing up in the UK a lot of these songs didn't necessarily even get released in America. This first band is a classic example of that. This is the Heavy Metal Kids."
Heavy Metal Kids
"And before that the Heavy Metal Kids who never really got a foot hold in America at all. In fact they weren't really that popular in England. They were what's known as a cult band. But they were fantastic featuring the late great Gary Holton on lead vocals. The album is Kitsch. The song we just heard Chelsea Kids."
"When Def Leppard were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in March of this year. I was extremely excited to see Roxy Music get inducted as well. As a long term fans of theirs it was brilliant to watch them play live one more time. There they are from their album Country Life. The song is All I Want Is You."
Be Bop Deluxe
"I'm Joe Elliott on SiriusXM's Deep Tracks. This is Songs From The Vault and what we're about to hear now is a brand new remix of a 1975 song by the band Be Bop Deluxe."
"And before that Be Bop Deluxe from an album originally released in 1975 and produced by Roy Thomas Baker who produced the majority of the early Queen albums. But that's a 2019 remix of the song Stage Whispers."
"Originally a massive hit in the 60s for a guy called Barry Ryan. I believe it was written by his brother Paul. It is the very theatrical and dramatic version there by The Damned. The song is called Eloise."
Guns N' Roses
"Now here's a song back 1992 and 1993 on the Adrenalize tour Def Leppard used to go onstage to this song, because at 10 minutes and 14 seconds it gave us plenty of time to make sure that we were ready. Oh and by the way it's a fantastic bit of work. This is Guns N' Roses."
"And before that we heard from the album Use Your Illusion I back in 1991. Guns N' Roses and the song that Def Leppard used to walk out on stage to on the Adrenalize tour. A great bit of work called Coma."
"He's toured the world as lead singer of Def Leppard. These are his stories and music from his personal collection. Joe Elliott's Songs From The Vault on SiriusXM's Deep Tracks."
"Before that we heard Peter Gabriel. The song Intruder. Very spooky bit of work where apparently the sound of the Intruder walking across the creaky floorboards was achieved by someone scratching a guitar pick across piano strings. How very inventive of Peter Gabriel."
"That my friends is what's known as the New York Mix of Stargazer by Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow from the 1976 album Rainbow Rising. It's a bonus track these days on the re-release of the album. Very annoyingly when we opened for Rainbow on a European tour back in 1981 they wouldn't play that song live. Which is a real shame 'cause it's my favourite bit of work that they ever did."
"You're listening to SiriusXM's Deep Tracks. I'm Joe Elliott and this is Songs From The Vault. And here's one from very deep in the vault. This is McGuinness Flint."
"And before that you heard a band called McGuinness Flint. Now you may not be overly familiar with them but two members of that band did go on to have some pretty decent success on their own and writing songs for the likes of Tina Turner. They were Gallagher and Lyle. The song we just heard Malt And Barley Blues."
"Cor blimey he doesn't half sound like his Dad on that one doesn't he?. That is Julian Lennon with a great song called Stick Around."
"I'm Joe Elliott. This is Songs From The Vault on SiriusXM's Deep Tracks. And here's a band didn't really take off that big but they were quite popular I believe in Los Angeles in 1977. They are Starz."
"And before that we heard Starz. Never quite really made on an International or even a national scale in the States. But I do know that they were very popular round the LA circuit. They are Starz. The song Cherry Baby."
"That is a band that is on the up and up and I love them to death. That is The Struts from the album Young And Dangerous. The song 21st Century Dandy which just about sums up their singer Luke to perfection."
"You have been listening to Joe Elliott's Songs From The Vault on SiriusXM's Deep Tracks. So that's about it for this particular show. I shall be back with you next time with more Songs From The Vault. Hopefully something in there for everybody."
"So until next time I'm gonna leave you with this. From 1986, this from their debut album, is The Clash with a fantastic version of the Bobby Fuller Four song I Fought The Law. Until next time be good to each other people."
