Seoul, South Korea Tour Story/Media Quote - By Joe Elliott

Metal Edge - Is it a totally different environment over there in Asia as opposed to America?

Joe Elliott

"Every country is different. When you start the tour off, you lump it as Southeast Asia, but some countries are five hours apart by plane, which is as far as New York is from L.A. The cultures are all slightly different, they're just all of an oriental nature."

"You have semi-language barrier problems to negotiate, which is not that much of a problem, I'm sure politicians have a much harder job than we do. Generally it's been very, very good. Singapore was a bit more reserved than Bangkok, and in Seoul, where you'd think they were more reserved, they were completely nuts."
