Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott has spoken to the Daily Mail as part of an article on the 30th anniversary of This Is Spinal Tap.

Joe was one of a number of musicians recalling Spinal Tap like moments in their own career.

Joe spoke of an incident in Belgium which could be from either 1983 or 1996 - the only times they've played the country in winter.

Daily Mail - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

"We were at a radio station, in a godawful Belgian town in the depths of winter. We headed off to the radio station to take calls - and nobody phoned in. To save face one of the production team called from next door and asked us where we got the name for the band. We all looked at each other and said, "It's Artie Fufkin."
