In a recent interview with “Rock Hard With Jay Conroy”, DEF LEPPARD frontman Joe Elliott was full of praise for fellow Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees AEROSMITH.
“AEROSMITH is so uniquely them. I remember people used to compare ’em to THE [ROLLING] STONES, because of the sloppy thing, and more likely because of Steven‘s [Tyler, vocals] lips. But I didn’t hear them as THE STONES. Maybe a little bit — yeah, probably the attitude — but musically, they were very different. And what AEROSMITH do is so unique. They own it.
“We did some shows with them in South America in 2017, and specifically, two of ’em were probably the best rock shows I’ve ever seen,” he continued.
“They were just on fire. When they get it right, my God — they’re unstoppable. They are a force of nature.”
