If for some reason you are not familiar with Def Leppard, they are a rock band from the early 1980’s who’s music has spanned over 3 decades. When the band first came about, their music was a bit heavier than it is right now, but that didn’t stop people from liking them. In fact, their fan base has only increased with each recording they have put out. The present lineup of the band consists of Joe Elliot on lead vocals, Phil Collen on lead guitar, Rick Allen on drums, Rick Savage on bass and Vivian Campbell on guitar. Tragedy and unfortunate things have happened to the band over the years, but they have always pressed on with new music that has always defied the odds. Back in 1984, the bands drummer, Rick Allen, was in a horrible automobile accident that unfortunately took his left arm away. Just when fans were wondering how and if the band would continue, technology came to the rescue and a whole new drum kit was designed specifically for the one armed drummer. The band also lost Steve Clark when he passed in 1991 from a drug and alcohol related problem. Through all that though, the band continued on and only grew in popularity. Just recently, Vivian Campbell announced that he had cancer, but vowed that he would not let it slow him down, and it didn’t.
For a band that has seen its share of destructive happenings, it just made them stronger, which helped them gain even more fans. Today their fan base extends worldwide and their newest album just cemented that fact.
