I just came across this strange article where Def Leppard's lead singer compares his band with Morrissey. Really bloody strange bit of news, I must say:
Def Leppard Gets No Respect, Says Singer Joe Elliott - TripleM Music
If only his shite band never released any music, there I go again dreaming. What an absolute & utter wanker that nutjob is.
"We've sold more records than Morrissey and I think I'm a better singer than Morrissey and we think we write better songs than Morrissey yet they'll still think that Morrissey is really cool because he was once in The Smiths.
"I've got nothing against Morrissey, I've got something against the press that think that way."
