They didn't scrap 10 songs and re-write and re-record new material while Vivian was undergoing cancer treatment. The songs are exactly the same - largely recorded as a band together - something they haven't done since Slang. Viv is just talking about the production approach, overdubs, how it's mixed, etc... Material can change rapidly depending how you want it represented sonically. Like

Vivian Campbell recently commented on what the new DEF LEPPARD material is sounding like: Vivian: "Well, it's never finished 'till it's finished, but, like I said, last year when we first started playing, we did track as a band, and when we do that, we tend to write more rock songs. So I would say that the first four or five tracks that we cut were on the heavier side, but I have no idea

Agreed, very nice guitar solo! Not the greatest song in the world, but it's certainly not meant to be a pop "hit single" in 2015. More power to them for playing the music they want to play.

Extreme currently have a whopping six tour dates on their calendar, so here's hoping they'll be announcing a batch of new shows in the near future.

I heard Def Leppard tried to get Extreme instead of Lita Ford a few years ago, but it didn't work out. They probably didn't want to only be on stage for 35 minutes with 1/2 the crowd not in their seats yet.

It's basically the Hysteria tour with Styx being added in as a bonus. And by bonus, I mean bathroom/beer break for me.

Hey Andrew - I know Def Leppard have announced one show with Styx and Tesla (August 27 @ Minnesota State Fair), but can you confirm that's the package for the entire summer tour? I was hoping Def Lep would tour with Whitesnake. Styx put me to sleep. Not a bad live band, but I've seen them way too many times. Speaking of Whitesnake, they just announced a Greeley, CO show today for June 27

He's 100% live here - I never understand how some people can't tell the difference. And all the nightly talk shows are filmed around 4pm or 5pm in the afternoon, so they can certainly re-film a segment if there's a "glitch."

It's an all-time classic. To this day I can't hear the name Steve Perry without saying "STEVE PERRY!!"

Of all the KISS books, I enjoyed Paul Stanley's the most. All the guys tell their own version of "the truth" but I'm in the Paul/Gene camp when it comes to wanting to work with guys who can pull their own weight, don't bitch every seven seconds about not getting paid enough, drinking, doing drugs, etc... Rick Springfield and Dee Snider's books are excellent. Haven't read Scott Ia

Yeah, I didn't want to go down that road about the compact disc. I wasn't 100% sure if the Dangerous Toys album was issued on CD upon its release, but of course CD's were on the market in the mid-'80s. I remember vividly buying Def Leppard's Hysteria on LP, cassette and CD when it came out in August 1987. So CD's were pretty common by 1989.

I did a phone interview with Jason McMaster of Dangerous Toys (and Broken Teeth - and Sad Wings - and about 13 other bands!) last week and wanted to share the links here. I work at School of Rock in franchise development and Jason is an instructor at the Austin, TX School of Rock so of course we chatted about SoR. The third clip is a discussion about a relatively unknown Texas band called P

The first time I saw Bon Jovi live was on the Slippery When Wet tour - Cinderella opened. After the show, I vividly remember telling my friends, "Richie is the talent in that band!"

Just saw Judas Priest a few months ago and they've lost nothing musically. Rob stalks the stage and is still a great performer. I will say Glenn Tipton stood still the entire night and let Richie Faulkner do all the heavy lifting and posing.

http://www.pollstar.com/news_article.aspx?ID=815659 Pollstar is reporting Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest and Motörhead are reportedly joining forces for the "Monsters Tour" this year. So far one stop has been booked in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Damn, I'd pay a few bucks to see that show.

http://www.995themountain.com/30-Years-Ago-Def-Leppard-Drummer-Rick-Allen-Loses-/20070470?pid=447022 I was such a huge 14-year-old Def Leppard fan at the time that I called the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield in an attempt to speak with Rick Allen. I connected with a gentleman who said, "Are you calling about the drummer? He's doing quite well, actually." That was good eno

I Love Rock & Roll AND Crimson and Clover are both covers. Nothing against Joan personally, but "Bad Reputation" doesn't merit being inducted into the RRHOF.

I was at that Whitesnake / Bad English Red Rocks show on May 4, 1990. You forgot to mention it SNOWED during that gig and Coverdale wasn't too thrilled with the crowd being so cold and not into their set.

Of course it depends on each band, but just read the liner notes on the overwhelming majority of the CD's in your collection and you won't see a lot of drummers listed as songwriters.

It's accepted among musicians that the publishing for songwriter goes to the person(s) that wrote the melody, verse, chorus and lyrics to a song. "Minor" contributions like drum fills don't warrant publishing. A good example is TLC's "Waterfalls" where Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes got songwriting credit because she wrote the lyrics to the rap in the mid-section of the s

There's more to that interview w/ Eddie Trunk - check out the podcast. Later on, Ozzy chatted with Jake E. Lee and basically said, "I had to f*** you. I got f***ed in Black Sabbath and now it's my turn to f*** you. When you get your own band, you'll f*** the next guy. That's just how it works!"

Compare this video to George's KXM video for "Rescue Me" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD40-CJljas There's no comparison. Nobody else finds it weird that Michael couldn't be bothered to put the bass player and drummer in the video?? Almost as bad as the recent Stryper video where they didn't even set up a drum kit for Robert Sweet. He was just standing there looking like
