Joe Elliott's Dream Band

05/29/2011
.
(Gibson) As Joe Elliott and the rest of Def Leppard gear up for the release of their first career-spanning live album, Mirrorball, the headlining slot at Britain's Download festival on June 10, and a major summer tour with openers Heart, he shared with The Independent what his "dream band" would look like.

Drums - John Bonham: "He might have played in a rock band but he had a Motown background and you can hear this in his playing. His technique was stunning. He achieved this huge sound but it looked effortless."

Bass - Phil Lynott: "As frontman of Thin Lizzy he was really great, but imagine how good his bass playing would be if that was all he had to concentrate on? He should probably contribute to the songwriting, too. He was very poetic." Find out who else would be in the band
