In his youth, Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott was creatively influenced by the music of the late 60’s and early 70’s. From legendary acts like T. Rex, Mott The Hoople, David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and so many others. Each month, listen to Elliott play “Deep Tracks” from his personal music collection. Expect to hear songs from Joe’s vault and some of the stories behind them.
We are thrilled to announce we will be performing at the second annual A Bowie Celebration on January 8, what would have been David Bowie’s 75th birthday. The event will be available on RollingLiveStudios.com.
We will be performing alongside pianist Mike Garson, Bowie’s longest-tenured bandmate, who is once again producing the concert alongside Rolling Live Studios.
