Def Leppard - May 2022 Interview Quotes

Def Leppard 2022.

Take What You Want/Playing It Live In 2022

Joe Elliott - "Yeah Rick Savage wrote the music for it. And he says I've got this song. You know I thought when he said he's written a song he meant the entire song like he did with From Here To Eternity."

Joe Elliott - "And he goes I've written this song called Take What You Want. I go OK cool. He says I haven't written any lyrics yet. I just thought Take What You Want would be a great title."

Joe Elliott - "I went OK do you wanna write or do you want me to do it?. He said no you can do it if you want. So I didn't try and re-write. He'd said Take What You Want. I thought OK I'll use that as a starting point."

Phil Collen - "So I just went on from Take What You Want, Take What You Need and carried on. So we had the chorus first then went backwards to that verse lyrics and melodies and stuff like that."

Joe Elliott - "And I just presented it to the guys like we did every other song on this record. And said what do you think?. You know and with every other song whether it be the vocals being presented or the solos or the actual song themselves."

Joe Elliott - "It was just a universal yes because we were so happy to let each individual member of the band express themselves from a songwriting point of view, because we deserve it I suppose."

Joe Elliott - "We've shackled ourselves in the past to like Oh we need to write a certain way. And it's like no you can write any way you want. And we'll make it work you know."

Joe Elliott - "But none of this is square peg in a round hole. It's natural and it is a great opener. It's got kind of echoes of our past. You know the fact that it's got this huge big symphonic intro is very classically us."

Joe Elliott - "And it's got a little bit of the Rock1 Rock! (Till You Drop) intro comparison if you like. Which I think is a great echo to have you know."

Joe Elliott - "It worked great on Pyromania, so why wouldn't it work on this record. And once that riff kicks in, I mean it's just."

Joe Elliott - "Imagine that one live huh?. Hint Hint. So, you know, opening track of the record, you know, yeah. It's gonna be a stonking live track. It is it's great fun to play."

Joe Elliott - "As is. Most songs are when you start doing new songs. When you add new blood to your set. It's the lifeblood for the band really. And it's what keeps you fresh."

Joe Elliott - "If you're forever just going round playing the same set year in year out. As much as your audience can pull you through a situation. Especially if they're really digging the songs, there's nothing like it from n internal point of view of offering up something new."
