Outlaw is about stories. It’s a lifetime’s journey enjoying rock ‘n’ roll. And these rock bands that we love, well, they’re our modern day pirates, dandies and highwaymen sent to quicken our pulses and push our imaginations into overdrive. They live outside our normal rules and we in turn live vicariously through them as we view their world. So let’s raise a glass to the stories that make us smile, and the ones that we are yet to hear and to the journeys just begun and the people we will meet along the way…. join us in an Outlaw brotherhood.  More info HERE

Joe Elliott’s Down ‘n’ Outz – New Video “Creatures”

As premiered on Classic Rock Magazine, here is the brand new video from Joe’s side project Down ‘n’ Outz new single “Creatures”.

Elliott tells Classic Rock: “When I wrote the music for this I just had this weird feeling I was writing something very different to anything I’d written before.   “For a start, it was written on the piano but it was jaunty, vaudeville – almost a summary of the stuff that really intrigued me in my youth when artists like David Bowie, Roxy Music, Cockney Rebel and Queen embraced a very European style of writing.    “I knew the lyrics had to follow suit so it’s a stream of conscious type thing, very cinematic, dreamy… don’t ask me what it’s all about!”  Read the full interview with Joe HERE
