Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott has been interviewed by the UK press and mentioned his recording studio and finances.

Joe spoke to of This Is Money to promote the current 'The Story So Far the Best Of Def Leppard' album.

Joe talked about his parents, his first paid job, early money struggles, Def Leppard's earnings, recording contracts/pension, their best financial year, expensive purchases, his current home, best/worst money decisions, investments, what he would do if he became UK Chancellor, and his financial priorities.

He revealed that he paid 450,000 pounds for his current home in Stepaside near Dublin in the late 1980s where the band have recorded almost every album made since starting with 'Adrenalize'.

The article also shares the real name of his daughter Lyla, who was born in 2016. Her name is not Rhonda as someone told me a couple of years ago.

Visit the Album News section for more news on new music (based on band member quotes).

This Is Money - Interview Quotes

Do you own any property?

"My home is a three-bedroom house with a granny flat annexe and a two-car garage with three acres of land, hidden away on the outskirts of Dublin. It has got my studio in it and I own it outright. I paid 450,000 Irish pounds for it in 1988, which is the equivalent of paying £950,000 sterling for a property today.."

What was the best year of your financial life?

"Possibly 1998, maybe 1992 when we released Adrenalize but actually I expect it will be last year. We did 50 shows in the United States and blasted through Japan, Australia and New Zealand – all sell-outs. I am not going to brag about how much I earned last year, but I am not penniless."
