Tuesday, 15th May 2012

Rock Of Ages Soundtrack 2012.

Tom Cruise has been interviewed by Playboy magazine and spoke about meeting Def Leppard while filming the new Rock Of Ages movie.

The band members visited the set as they started the 2011 Mirrorball tour and watched him sing 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' on the set in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. You can read the full interview at the Playboy website (not sure what else is on their site...). The Rock Of Ages movie now has it's own official site.

Playboy - Tom Cruise Interview Quotes

PLAYBOY: The first song you sang in front of a crowd was "Pour Some Sugar on Me," with Def Leppard there, watching you. Pressure?

CRUISE: Yes. [laughs]

PLAYBOY: Director Adam Shankman said they were eager to abuse you, but you ruined it by nailing the song.

CRUISE: I was down in Miami, recording different songs, and Adam called and said, "Def Leppard's coming by the set." I said, "Man, that's cool." Then I paused. "Wait, I'm rehearsing their song tomorrow." And he's like, "Yeah!" [laughs] So we started right in the deep end, and that was the first scene I shot in the movie. It's a great song, and I grew up listening to them. They went to the back of the Bourbon Room, and I looked at my band and was like, "Hit it." All the crew was watching them watching me.

PLAYBOY: So what did they say?

CRUISE: Well, the lead singer, Joe Elliott, points at me and goes, "Fuck you! Fuck you!" Then I saw big smiles on their faces, and I realized I'd gotten their stamp. It was a very cool moment. It was important they knew I was honoring their music and not making fun of them.
