Def Leppard Plans?

"We are going to go in and record. We didn't really want to tour again next year. I know there has been some talk already, as people are always throwing things at us. Our plan, at the moment, is for my finger to get healed and then record somewhere around March…I don't actually need a guitar to write songs as I can tell Viv, Joe or Sav [Rick Savage] "Play this" and that is really the easy part. I can computerize stuff so that is no problem at all, lyrics, melodies, solos. That is the plan."

"I won't say that we are going in the studio next, but we will probably go over to Joe's house and put some stuff together. We have got a bunch of ideas. We are not planning an album, but if one comes together then that's great. If not then, we can do an EP of a bunch of songs. We are going to be recording though."
