Show Intro

"In the immortal words of the late great Roy Orbison It's Over. Yes Las Vegas Residency 2019 at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood is no more. 12 shows completed. 12 shows magnificent times had by all apparently. We had a fantastic time on our side of the stage at least. It was really a fantastic experience. So I can not wait to repeat.

"Good evening everybody welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. As I said the Def Leppard residency is over. It is time to move on to different shores. This is brand new Down 'n' Outz."

Down 'n' Outz

"The album is out 11th October. It is titled This Is How We Roll. And that is the opening track a song called Another Man's War. Now unlike the first two Down 'n' Outz albums this third album is completely self-written save for one cover by this band. This is The Tubes."

The Tubes

"And before that we heard The Tubes from the album Remote Control which was produced by the wonderful Mr. Todd Rundgren. The song TV Is King."

The Police

"The video for that song and specifically Sting's jacket and permanently burned into my retinas because in the summer of 1983 that video along with Photograph were literally played back to back for almost six months. It was a great time to be in a band. That from The Complete Collection Message In A Box is The Police Synchronicity II. Originally of course featured on the album Synchronicity. ."

Black Sabbath

"Now then how about this for a guitar sound."

"And before that Black Sabbath. The title track of the album Sabbath Bloody Sabbath."


"It would be easy to think that those two bands don't have that much in common. But they had enough in common for Tony Iommi to stand side by side with Brian May for the entire Freddie Mercury Tribute show back in 1992. That is fantastic work from Queen. From their third album Sheer Heart Attack in 1974. The song Tenement Funster. One of Roger Taylor's absolute classics."

"You are listening to the Joe Elliott show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. It is time for a little break and when we come back, we're gonna get into some forensic detective work with Supertramp."


"And before that Supertramp from their massive breakthrough album which was produced by Ken Scott who produced Ziggy Stardust etc. for David Bowie. The album is Crime Of The Century. The song we heard Rudy."


"It is almost indistinguishable from the version that Paul McCartney demoed back in the 60s and eventually surfaced on the Beatles Anthology II collection. It is Badfinger however. There are rumours that it's actually Paul McCartney's demo and they just sang over it. But seeing as most of them are dead now we'd have to ask Paul. Or the one surviving member of Badfinger of the actually urban myth about that song but it was a huge hit and it is a fantastic song. It is Come And Get It."

Tuff Darts

"OK couple of tunes now from bands commonly known as US Garage bands. One of them didn't make it and one of them absolutely did. Starting off with the one that didn't. This is the Tuff Darts."

"And before that Tuff Darts. Originally on an EP called Live At C.B.G.B.'s. These days you can find it on Spurt Punk and Post Punk From The 70s and Beyond. The song is called All For Love Of Rock N Roll."

Alice Cooper

"I still to this day remember my mother's face when she saw that album cover for the first time she was absolutely mortified. it is 1971's Killer. it's Alice Cooper. the song You Drive Me Nervous."

The Pretty Things

"It's such a shame that band never made it really really big. they did have some great songs. In fact they had an ex-Rolling Stone in Phil May. Albeit he was a very brief member of the band. But they had some fantastic tunes. That was one of them it was a single I believe in 1967. These days it can be found as a bonus track on the album SF Sorrow. It is The Pretty Things with Walking Through My Dreams."

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 with more of the same only a little bit different."

"Gonna leave you with this week with a song once covered by Def Leppard. In fact it was the B-Side of Let's Get Rocked. This from the album Slaughter On Tenth Avenue in 1974 is Mick Ronson with Only After Dark. Until next week see ya."
