Def Leppard Vs 'Moron'

Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott suffered the tragic loss of his father this year, so perhaps that wasn't the best time to criticize the band's choice of songs they play in concert. Joe's response became the No 10 story in our Top 11 Feuds of 11 countdown. Here it is:

Def Leppard's Joe Elliott has lashed out at a fan who criticized their choice of songs on tour while they were trying to get to grips with the death of the singer's father.

Joe Senior, who'd actively supported the band since their earliest days, died last month. But he'd insisted they kept to their touring schedule despite his illness, and Elliott has admitted "I wasn't at the top of my game" during the difficult period.

Now he's called one supporter a "moron" for emailing him to complain about the band's setlist on the shows they did just after his dad passed away. "The guy accused me of being a fraud because on the first four gigs we did after the break we did exactly the same set," Elliott tells Spinner. "I wasn't going to say to the guy, 'Well, you know, my father just passed away let's just keep it simple for the first week then we can get into the experiments.'" He goes off from there and moron is the tamest word he used
