Def Leppard's Joe Elliott Granted Dying Father's Wish
The singer had wanted to postpone the band's upcoming US tour dates after his dad suffered a heart attack in April. But the man who had funded Def Lep's first recording session told him to get back to work.
Elliott and his mum were with Joe Senior when he died in a UK hospital last week. Long-time chief roadie and friend Malvin Mortimer says: "Joe's father, Joe Senior to all who knew him, suffered a significant heart attack in April. While he was in intensive care he had two more attacks. He was very low for a week or so." more on this story
