Show Intro

"Greetings my fellow music lovers and welcome once again to The Joe Elliott show right here on the lovely Planet Rock. Hope you are well. Hope you're all nice and wrapped up warm under a cosy blanket with a cup of coco. Rather than being out in all that blustery weather. it is strong enough to blow the wig off you and none of us want that do we, no we don't."

"So what have we got lined up for you tonight?. Well in my humble opinion sixty minutes as usual of great music. But we've also got a competition for you tonight which is very cool. It is a competition to win one of five copies of the upcoming Def Leppard box set The Early Years 1978 to 1981. The first five contestants to email me the correct answer which is basically what is the theme of tonight's show. And you have until Wednesday 12th February at 5pm to get your answers in."

"The first five to get it right will win a copy of that box set The Early Years. Now I'll be honest with you here, this is so easy. It's as easy as picking foxes from a tree. I believe I shall have five answers in the first five seconds of the second song. So are you ready?. I am."

Down 'n' Outz

"It was a long time coming. It was recorded over a five year period. Only took about three months to do but you try rounding up six people that are all in different bands and they're all working all the time. That is the Down 'n' Outz and This Is How We Roll."

The Quireboys

"Now fifty percent of the Down 'n' Outz are also in this band. This is The Quireboys."

"And before that The Quireboys with Amazing Disgrace."

Rod Stewart

"Now stop me if you've heard this one before. But that is a track from the first ever album I bought. 1971. I think I was 11 years old and it cost two pounds and 11p. And I remember that because, yes the sticker is still on the sleeve and yes I still have that record. It is Rod Stewart Every Picture Tells A Story."

The Rolling Stones

"So until the likes of Guns N' Roses came along this next band were often regarded as the most dangerous band in rock and roll. This is The Rolling Stones."

"And before that The Rolling Stones from 1974 It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)."

The Who

"Looking forward to seeing them at the 3Arena in Dublin on the 18th March. It's part of their British and Irish tour that runs through till April. It is The Who there from their 1978 album. The last album that they ever did with the late great Keith Moon. It is Who Are You."

"You are listening to The Joe Elliott Show on the wonderful Planet Rock. It is time for a little break. And when we come back, some fine work from Paul McCartney and Wings."

Paul McCartney And Wings

"And before that Paul McCartney from 1973. Fantastic work. The song Band On The Run."


"I saw them at the Sheffield City Hall in 1975 when they were promoting the album Crisis What Crisis. That is Supertramp with Crime Of the Century."

The Clash

"Now if he was still with us the late great Joe Strummer, in this weather, would probably be battening down the hatches right now because according to him he lived by the river. This is The Clash."

"And before that from 1979 just. Came out December 14th. We heard The Clash produced by Mott The Hoople's long time producer Guy Stevens. The song London Calling."


"From their second album and the last one to feature Sammy Hagar on lead vocals, that is Montrose with Paper Money."

Show Outro

"And that my friends is about it for this week. It's been a real pleasure as always. Especially as, well we love a good competition don't we. So good luck with that. Remember your answers have to be in by Wednesday February 12th at 5pm."

"So until next week I'm gonna leave you with this from 1976. AC/DC and Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. Till next week see ya!."
