10 Years Of Planet Rockstock/Rockstock 10

Joe Elliott - 26th November 2023 Interview Quotes (Transcribed by dltourhistory)

Ricky Warwick - "Despite the world's best attempts, Rockstock 2013 was a success and showed that there was an audience hungry for another event like this."

"But it was also clear that we needed more space. So in 2014, we made the move to the current home of Treco Bay."

"The headliners that year were California Breed on the Friday, Michael Schenker on Saturday and Magnum on the Sunday."

"Also playing that Saturday night was my good friend, Joe Elliott, with his Down 'n' Outz."

"We asked Joe what he remembered about that night."

Joe Elliott - "The Down 'n' Outz toured the UK and Ireland in December 2014, starting off at the Bierkeller in Bristol on the 5th."

"We'd spent the previous four days sleeping in a damp, manky hotel and rehearsing in a damp, manky rehearsal room."

"Half the band turned up with flu. By the time we got to Rockstock on the 6th, the entire band had gone down with something."

"I was diagnosed with double pneumonia, but I went on anyway, hiding behind a pair of shades and a very shiny guitar."

"Under the circumstances, I thought we did pretty well as a band, and I spent the rest of the afternoon drinking hot toddies and talking at a distance to Michael Schenker and KK Downing, who was there as a guest."

"Not exactly sexy and shiny, but having toured for over 46 years, certainly a gig that I'll never forget."

Vivian Campbell - 7th December 2019 Interview Quote

Ricky Warwick - "And also on the bill Viv Campbell's side project, away from Def Leppard, Last In Line."

Vivian Campbell - "I'm excited about tonight's show. I've met a lot of people here today and the vibe is good. So yeah it's all good, regardless of the weather."
