Def Leppard Planning New Album
Having completed a successful residency this past spring in Las Vegas, where they performed their Hysteria album in a series of 11 "Viva Hysteria!" shows, the veteran British rockers are looking forward to giving their 1983 Pyromania album the same treatment.
"The Vegas thing was amazing," says guitarist Phil Collen, speaking with Billboard. "We're also going to be doing 'Viva Pyromania!' at some point at the end of next year."
Collen added that Def Leppard is also preparing to record an album of new material, utilizing a live-in-the-studio approach similar to that used for their 1996 disc, Slang—at least in part. "You paint yourself into a corner with a certain writing style when you have a huge album," observes Collen. "Slang [was] very raw--us playing live--and everyone hated it. You learn from that. You don't want to cop out too much." more on this story
