Def Leppard members Joe Elliott and Phil Collen have paid tribute to Mick Ronson on the 20th anniversary of his death.

Joe and Phil spoke to ITV News about the late guitarist who passed away in 1993. Phil mentioned he'd seen him just two days before his death in London. Def Leppard were about to start their European tour when he died and played a short acoustic version of 'Ziggy Stardust' as a tribute at their Stockholm show on 30th April 1993.

Joe was working with Mick at the time of his death on his final solo album 'Heaven And Hull'. He hosted a two hour tribute edition of his Planet Rock radio show over the weekend.

Listen to Joe/Phil speak below.
