What's got nine arms and sucks?
It's funny because his life was nearly ruined.
One of the guys from TMBG said, "I'd give my right arm to be the drummer for Def Leppard"
On a serious note, back in the 80s Def Leppard was given massive amounts of magazine covers and press and MTV air time.
Their style of rock lost its media appeal when grunge hit. I used to really like them. I saw them in concert back in 88. I haven't heard any of their songs since then so I don't know if they are any good or not but I have a feeling I would not think much of them.
They played Sweden Rock few years back. Heard it was OK. I think DL was a really good band. To me it's simply a classic classic rock band. Nothing like driving really fast, listening to Photograph, etc.
Obviously the young hipsters of today slag them of. Rock music like that just isn't the thing right now
Real working class band, that started out with nothing. Much like the Smiths.
Well, I don't know. For my part I always thought they were complete and obvious shite, and I was born in 1969. So does pretty much everyone I know, which doesn't include any young hipsters (but plenty of middle-aged metalheads. Saxon? Yes. Def Leppard? Yuck.)
Saxon, DF - I can have both. No need to choose!
Is this a joke?!Hahaha!!!Quote...
"Rock’s ploughed its own furrow for 30 years but still music magazines don’t give rock its due and still rave on about Nick Drake. How many more front covers do Paul McCartney and Morrissey need? Our album will sell more than Morrissey’s so why don’t we get the same kind of respect?"
