Roaring rock titan Joe Elliott of Def Leppard - DEF LEPPARD - talks Harry Sword through his guiding audio lights, from Bowie to glam to punk and back.


Roxy Music - Siren
I could've picked anything by Roxy but Siren is just incredible; there isn't a bad track on the whole thing. That album was the last before they went lounge. The suits came a bit later. On Siren he was still dressed like an army guy - well, a cub scout without the hat on. I never saw Roxy live until 2001 though - I only ever saw them on the telly. 'Love Is A Drug' and 'Both Ends Burning' are great singles, they had so much oomph. And 'Whirlwind'- what a song - just a hugely consistent record from start to finish. Very well played and very well produced.
