DEF LEPPARD vocalist Joe Elliott recently spoke to Terri Dunbar-Curran from South Africa's Cape Times in anticipation of his upcoming tour with KINGS OF CHAOS.“The great thing about this band, this ‘collection of rogues’, is that we all get along. We don’t get sick of each other,” he says.
“Matt Sorum put the band together. We’ve known each other for years. To quote OZZY OSBOURNE, he asked if we wanted to ‘get aboard this crazy train’. Join in, sing a few songs and have a bit of fun – with no pressure,” Elliott says, adding that there’s no ego involved – they’re just a group of old friends getting together to make music."
“It’s a wonderful experience to work with these guys. They just smile all the time. Everyone has been in a band for 30 or 40 years, and we all have great jokes and stories.”
