“I’m more of a portrayer of a lyric than a singer in the sense of Lou Gramm or Paul Rodgers” – Joe Elliott on the new Down ‘n Outz release.

I’m well aware that this is a side project, and then as much as I’ll talk myself to death about these projects, we all know it can’t possibly compete with Def Leppard or anything like that. So, it has to be standalone to be taken for what it’s worth, which is, I like to think a great record that will stand up by being played on people’s stereos at home, you know what I mean?

The Quireboys live at Limelight 1, Belfast on November 21st, 2014

Spike retains his bonhomie and still exhibits a great rapport and level of interaction with both sexes. His vocals remain as characteristic and unchanging since the band first started. Many vocalists over the years tend to lose some elements of their range as they age. Clearly not a problem here.The band retain their ability to deliver a solid night of entertainment each time they step on stage-Several drinks with friends,lots of pretty ladies,and some party anthems. Stepping back in time it was just like the eighties never went away.
