Def Leppard's Joe Elliot Pays Tribute To Mike Shipley
Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott had the following to say about Shipley, "I'm devastated to hear of the passing of Mike Shipley. He was a fantastic engineer and a good guy.
"Nothing got past him if it wasn't up to scratch, hence Leppard's nick name for him, 'bat ears'. From the High & Dry album in 1981 to the last thing we did together, 1993's Two Steps Behind he was a joy to work with. RIP Shippers."
