Quotes from the interview:

The Ronnie James Dio hologram (time 7.18): "It was pretty nerve wracking. I wanted to get right and we wanted it to be good, so I really didn't have time for any emotion."

Led Zeppelin talk starts at (time) 10.30

AC/DC chat starts at (time) 12.00

Cliff Williams - should AC/DC continue (time 12.17): "Lots has happened in a short period of time, first of all with Malcolm - that really threw me. I don't know - Chris is there, Stevie is there and Angus obviously... People LOVE seeing the band and love that music so I don't think it would be completely out of order or strange to carry on with a new bass player."

Axl Rose in AC/DC (time 13.50): "At first when I heard about it, I thought, 'Is he going to be late? Is he going to show up?' I know Angus and the rest of the guys wouldn't put up with that, so I thought, 'Hmmm, this is going to be interesting.' But I did see it and I thought he did a great job."
