Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott was so keen to talk about his side project the Down ‘n’ Outz that he generously donated two autographed copies of the special limited edition ‘Live at the Hammersmith Odeon’ DVD for Ultimate Classic Rock’s exclusive giveaway.

As previously reported, Elliott is an uber fan of Mott the Hoople and their lead man, chief songwriter Ian Hunter. He grew up listening to MtH so when it was announced that the band would reunite, he formed a group with the Quireboys, played the Hammersmith Odeon gig and followed it up by releasing an album and concert DVD.

Elliott explains, “It’s a case of; I’m not doing it for me, I’m doing it to get these songs in to the public domain once again. They’re too good to just be gathering dust in cyberspace, so it just started to snowball.”

The limited edition DVD captures this historic Down ‘n’ Outz show brilliantly. It features the ten songs performed while opening for Mott the Hoople as well as a bonus track of the band playing a heartfelt cover of Elton John’s ‘Funeral For A Friend / Love Lies Bleeding’ from the Dave Kilner tribute concert in Sheffield. A brief documentary and three promo videos including the hit single ‘England Rocks’ are also included.

A flashing strobe light is effectively used throughout the concert film, reminiscent of the way it was used in David Bowie’s ‘Ziggy Stardust The Motion Picture’ (also filmed at the Hammersmith Odeon) and by no means is this a coincidence. One viewing and it’s clear — not only are the Down ‘n’ Outz saluting one of their favorite bands, they’re tastefully giving a nod to the classic ‘70s rock show.

Here’s how you can win an autographed copy of the Down ‘n’ Outz DVD: Follow @ultclassicrock on Twitter and re-tweet the announcement of this giveaway. You must enter by Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013 at noon EST. We’ll choose two winners at random to win the autographed DVDs.
