Planet Rock - October 2021 Interview Quotes - (Transcribed By dltourhistory)

Lockdown/The Stadium Tour

Joe - "I can't get a plumber. I can't get a builder. You know everybody wants to renovate because they've got all this time on their hands."

"But at the same time they're having somebody else do it while they're sat in the corner with a Fostex drum machine or four track digital recorder doing demos you know."

Writing New Songs

"Which is what we've been doing. We've been writing. We've just writing fools because we didn't want the year to go to waste."

Joe - "We had this tour lined up with Motley, Poison and Joan Jett. It got blown off."

Dave - "Oh that's right. Oh you didn't get to do it. Ohhh."

New Def Leppard Album

Joe - "And now it's rescheduled for next year so it's now on third time lucky you know. And so what are you gonna do."

"Well like you we were not gonna let this time goto waste."

"So we've been working and working and working and there's things in the pipeline and I can't say any more than that."

"But you know it's a case of like just grasping the nettle really because you've got all this time and the worst thing that you or I could do is sit there and waste it."
