DEF LEPPARD Members' CYBERNAUTS Planning Digital Album Release
March 10, 2014, 8 years ago
On March 8th, DEF LEPPARD singer Joe Elliott revealed on his weekly radio show that the CYBERNAUTS are planning a digital album release in the next year.
Phil Collen first mentioned the possible re-release of their album (with bonus tracks) during a KLOS radio interview in November 2013. Plans to play live again were ruled out following the deaths of both keyboards/vocalist Dick Decent and Trevor Bolder (ex-SPIDERS FROM MARS).
Joe now says he and drummer Woody Woodmansey (ex-Spiders From Mars) are going to try to release material digitally for the first time.
Says Joe: "I've been talking to Woody Woodmansey the drummer on that particular recording and of course on the original version of that which was from an album by David Bowie and The Spiders From Mars called Aladdin Sane. We were talking about the fact that the Cybernauts album is not available on iTunes and we're gonna go out of our way over the next year or so to try and get some bonus tracks put together and get the thing up on digital cause it's about time it was. From he Cybernauts studio CD that is our version of the Bowie classic Panic In Detroit."
Cybernauts were launched as a DAVID BOWIE cover band, formed as a tribute to Mick Ronson, featuring Def Leppard members Joe Elliott and Phil Collen, former Spiders From Mars members Trevor Bolder and Mick "Woody" Woodmansey, and a keyboards/vocalist, Dick Decent.
Cybernauts released a limited edition live album in Japan only, via Universal Music/Victor Entertainment Japan.
