It was 30 YEARS AGO TODAY that my friend Brandon and I set up a video camera in my living room at 7am and lip sync'd a bunch of Def Leppard, KISS and Ratt tunes. "Stagefright" was our test video so we were goofing around even more than usual. Now available on a special 2-DVD box set if you want to purchase the entire 27-song collection. Retail price: $675,000. Cash only! DEF LEP

Disagree. The Todd LaTorre QR is a tighter unit with much more inspiring music. Up to this point, there's been little to no comparison. At least Geoff was smart enough to mimic the Operation: Mindcrime album and sound - specifically the swelling keyboards and chorus of "Eyes Of A Stranger" in the new tune. Hey, if you're going to call the band O:M, you should at least borrow from

The song is actually done very well - love all the lead vocals and harmonies.

Really? The article was written by Ray Waddell of Billboard Magazine. BILLBOARD. They have access to officially reported ticket counts from Pollstar (look it up) as well as direct quotes from agents at William Morris, etc... So their figures are 1,000% accurate.

Good gravy! I would hate to hear Sebastian's shredded voice on that fifth straight night.

No band plays five shows in five nights anymore. Just doesn't happen. Look at Van Halen's tour schedule. Just like they last tour, they schedule a day off after EVERY show. Dave literally never has to sing back-to-back nights. Which is a very smart move.

On the contrary, Viv is the most active member of Leppard on social media and he's broken/confirmed more official band news than anyone else.

I was having some computer issues, so it's taken me a few weeks to upload some videos I shot of Dokken and Smash Mouth / Toad The Wet Sprocket / Tonic. My wife and I are huge Tonic fans, but were disappointed they had such a short (7 song) opening set. But it was fun to see Glen Phillips play an entire set barefoot. Don Dokken certainly isn't the same Don vocally anymore, but this was one

Not horrible at all, makes me want to hear more so I suppose that's a good sign. It's interesting that Geoff is not singing lead on that third track "Life or Death" And they are of course using variations of the imaging and branding elements like the logo and the tri-ryche as part of their overall logo.

Funny you mention that, I literally just listened to Ultraphobic and Belly To Belly yesterday back-to-back. I've always enjoyed those CD's - a very organic production and some excellent songs. After listening again closely, there are a few clunkers in there. It got me thinking that the best of those two CD's combined would have made for an all-time classic album.

I'm gonna download this EP when I get home from work. Love this style and glad to see Chris back in action - although you can tell he's happy to hide in the background with The Rue and let his daughter's voice shine.

I did an email interview with Joel last week and this is what he said about the album: I understand you have a new all-star side project featuring Russell Allen on vocals, Vinny Appice on drums and Tony Franklin on bass, among others. What can fans expect from this forthcoming album? Yes, I do. Thanks! It's called Joel Hoekstra's 13. I did all of the writing...words, melodies, the whole

I've listened to it twice so far and love it. Every song is great with the exception of "Hammer & Tongs" which is a bit too Rolling Stones-ey for my taste. Not horrible, just not a favorite. Dan Hawkins really plays his ass off on this record (and is that Dan signing lead on "Conquerors" because it's not Justin?) FYI - the Best Buy exclusive version has two more gr

LOVE Warrant with Robert Mason - a professional singer and a great rock show. They are coming to Denver in a few weeks and I'll probably pick up a ticket. Here's some video I shot when they came through town last year. This should give you an idea what they sound like these days... D.R.F.S.R. https://youtu.be/JVU0eYLlh84

Phil joined halfway through the recording of Pyromania, so they certainly had some success with High N' Dry, Bringin' On The Heartbreak video getting some airplay on MTV, etc... Pete Willis played all the rhythm guitar on Pyromania, but Phil played the solos we all know on Photograph, Rock of Ages, Foolin', Stagefright and Rock! Rock! (Till You Drop)

Or just go to Amazon.com and find these paragraphs. Can't wait for the book... A revelatory and redemptive memoir from the lead guitarist of the legendary band Def Leppard—the first book ever written by one of its members—chronicling the band’s extraordinary rise to superstardom and how they’ve maintained it for three decades.
