Def Leppard's Joe Elliott Pulls Out Of BSR Album

(Classic Rock) Joe Elliott has called off plans to produce Black Star Riders' second album after his Def Leppard schedule went "insane." BSR frontman Ricky Warwick says the change is unfortunate - but he'd have done the same thing in his friend's position.

Elliott was confirmed for the hot seat in January, after a long history with the Thin Lizzy offshoot including remixed the band's catalogue alongside guitarist Scott Gorham.

But Warwick tells Rock N'Load: "We haven't got Joe producing it. We did have Joe, but he's not doing it any more. He's unfortunately had to pull out of the doing the album, just due to the fact that Leppard have gone insane.

"They're out with Kiss and there's loads of stuff going on. Both of us are very sorry." More with Warwick here.
