Joe Elliott has released a new song inspired by David Bowie - "Goodnight Mr. Jones."
“I’ve been a fan ever since I saw Bowie perform ‘Starman’ on Top of the Pops in 1972 and was devastated when he passed away five years ago,” Elliott tells us. “‘Goodnight Mr. Jones’ was written as my sendoff / thank you song to a hugely influential artist. I wanted to mark the fifth anniversary of his passing with something that would celebrate the artistry of someone who remains a huge part of my life.”
“Goodnight Mr. Jones" sees the Def Leppard frontman paying tribute to his idol in sprawling, anthemic fashion, accompanied by his side project, Down 'n' Outz.
