25 years ago today, Steve Clark passed away. In my opinion, it was also the end of Def Leppard in many ways. Steve was the heart and soul of the band and they continue as a shadow of what they once were. So much good music that we never got to hear...

Yeah, if this isn't the last tour, it's more than likely next to last. Sad that Malcolm isn't playing. I think he doesn't get his share of recognition because Angus is the flashy one but the en

Reminds me of the interview where Joe Elliott says Photograph was NOT about Marilyn Monroe, even though that's exactly who he said the song was about when they played it in concert.

In Def Leppard's song "We Belong" each of other band members sings a line one after another. Does anyone know the order in which they sing? I think the first is Rick Allen, the second is obviously Phil (who sounds like a clone of Joe Elliot) - I'm not sure about the rest because they all sound so close.

I just bought the MP3 download from Amazon and all I have to say is... Wow!....just Wow! I've been playing songs at random and I can't believe what I'm hearing. Finally...finally the guitars are back. I'm talking about kick ass guitars that gets the blood flowing. I can't believe Def Leppard still had it in them. Usually it would take me several listens to get into the songs but I've bee

Well, I finished the book and I'll say this... For the fans that have been following Leppard's career over the years, there's really nothing new here, no revelations, no surprises. Except for a few interesting tidbits (Phil appears in the audience in the picture of Deep Purple's "Made In Japan" album), you've pretty much heard it all before in interviews over the years. I don't m

I'm about 40% through it. A little disappointed so far, I was hoping for some more details about how he joined the band but if you've been following them since their early days, you already know the story. No new details, he basically just repeats what we've heard in interviews countless times. The same goes with the recording of Hysteria. I know he played most of the guitar on the album, but
