According to Def Lep's Animal Instinct book, they approached a wide variety of producers when it became clear that Mutt Lange wouldn't be able to start work on the album.

Ted Templeman (Van Halen) and Mike Stone (Asia/Journey) - Leppard were concerned with ending up with another band's "hit" sound.

Trevor Horn (Frankie Goes To Hollywood) - he refused to leave England to record with Leppard.

Chris Thomas (Roxy Music / The Pretenders) and Steve Lillywhite (U2) were mentioned.

Phil Collins was up for the job, but was already committed to several other projects.
