The Oakland Press - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

New DEF LEPPARD Studio Album

"Sounds like Def Leppard but it sounds like Def Leppard stretching their wings a little bit."

"A couple of songs are tied to our DNA, if you like, instantly recognizable as us. Some of the stuff not so much, and represents who we are now, a band that's in their early to mid 50s, the kind of music they should be making without it sounding old and farty, but just a little more, y'know, experience involved."

"We're not trying to write 24-hour party songs at our age. That would be silly."
