"Evening all and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott Show right here on the wonderful Planet Rock. Which once again is coming to you all the way from Las Vegas in Nevada. Yes the residency is over but we are back in town for a one off show which is a radio special which is a 25 minute performance. God bless Rick Savage who's had to drive all the way from Sheffield to London, fly in to Las Vegas to perform five songs."
"I on the other hand am just back from a fantastic family vacation. I stayed close by so I didn't have to deal with that sort of hell. This is the sort of hell that I prefer. This is Guns N' Roses."
Guns N' Roses
"The year was 1991. The album was Use Your Illusion I. It is Guns N' Roses with Right Next Door To Hell."
"Now I don't know about right next door to hell. But certainly right next door to heaven because we're on stage at 8:25 tonight and off at 8:50 and guess who's on at 9pm right next door?."
"And before that Aerosmith. The band that Cheap Trick tour with quite frequently actually. Aerosmith back in town. They started their residency before Def Leppard did. They took a little break and now they're back and I'm off to see them tonight."
"Absolutely stunning stuff there by Cheap Trick. It is from their album One On One. The song is If You Want My Love."
"I'm sure if you've been reading the rock news recently you'll have seen that the grim reaper has been up to his usual tricks. So in honour of the fact that we've lost two fantastic artists over the last few days, let's celebrate their music. Starting off with the great Eddie Money."
"And before that Eddie Money who himself passed away about a week before then. We had the great pleasure of playing with Eddie Money on our first ever stadium show in San Diego, California in September 1983 and I still have that single I bought when I was a 16 year old kid. The song is Two Tickets To Paradise."
"It was the B-Side of the single My Best Friend's Girl, but for me it was the best track on the album. The album being The Cars debut album back in 1978. The song Moving In Stereo which I'm playing in honour of the fact that we lost Ric Ocasek earlier this week. Very, very sad news indeed.."
"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, a very moving tale of brotherly love from Pat Travers."
"And before that Pat Travers from his second aolo album back in 1977 the album is called Makin' Magic. The song that we heard Stevie."
Doctors Of Madness
"Absolutely brand spanking new Doctors Of Madness there from their album Dark Times featuring yours truly on the harmony vocal actually. Sounds a little Pink Floyd-ish that song. I really like that song it is called Blood Brother."
Be Bop Deluxe
"Now back in 1977 I saw Pat ravers and the Doctor Of Madness on the same bill and to be quite honest it was a bit of a mismatch. But about a year or so before then I'd seen the Doctors Of Madness opening for another band and to be quite honest, and please excuse the pun, it was a match made it heaven. For they supported this crowd, it was Be Bop Deluxe."
"And before that Be Bop Deluxe from the album Futurama. Originally released in 1975 but that is the brand new stereo remix of the song Music In Dreamland."
"From the album that is often referred to as Ian's return to form. That is Ian Hunter from the album Rant in 2011 with a magnificent piece of work called Morons."
"Right then time for a little blues rock at it's best. This is the Rival Sons."
"And before that we heard the Rival Sons from 2011. The album is Pressure And Time. The song we heard Get Mine."
"Featuring the late great Ronnie Montrose on guitar that is Edgar Winter with the single version of the song Free Ride."
"And that my friends, once again from Las Vegas in Nevada, 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 crowd. The album is called Too Much, Too Soon which was a very prophetic title because it pretty much was. 1974 their second and for the time being, or at least 25 years, their last album. It is the New York Dolls with Who Are The Mystery Girls. Until next week see ya."
