Nuvo - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

2016 US Tour Crowds

"So far so good! It’s 47 shows in total. ... It’s broken into three sections, 15, 15 and 13. We’ve done four so far, and then we’ve got 11 before we get a little break. Mostly on the East Coast all at the moment… but it’s been great at the moment. Great crowds, really really great crowds."

2015 Def Leppard Studio Album

"I suggest that everyone who reads this in a month makes an album like we did because it’ll be the most fun album you’ll ever make, and it’ll probably be a very productive piece of work. It’s a great album, we really like this record. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever done. It was certainly fun and enjoyable to make and create…you don’t want it to be an unpleasant experience making an album just to fulfill a contract, you know? We weren’t doing that, we were making an artistic statement, and that was the most original, organic way you can make a record."

David Bowie's Death

"In the case of David Bowie, I bought my first Bowie album when I was 11… and they’re not here anymore. The positive side of it is that their music will last forever. The fact is that there won’t be any new stuff, and that’s it’s old, you have to go back into the vaults like you had to do with Elvis, which itself can be exciting."
