I'm sure the truth is somewhere in the middle, but I find it hard to take what Steinman says seriously. Basically just because of how he frames everything.

He says Leppard were "lost," but they knew exactly what Pyromania had sold and wanted Hysteria to be "Star Wars for the ears." They just didn't know exactly how to get there. But they were never going to cut a six-week album and Steinman should have been smart enough to know that...

I'm sure the first several months were spent just coming to terms with the fact that Mutt wasn't available. And don't forget that Rick Allen lost his arm. It was going to take a lot of time for him to recover and learn to play the drums again. The fact that Steinman was their 37th choice for producer doesn't make him look good.
