Sunny 107.9 Morning Show - Rick Allen Interview Quotes

Proud Of New Def Leppard Album?

"Ah really proud of it. And we weren't afraid to delve back into our past. You know borrow things from Def Leppard. But also show people where we came from and the influences. You know we were just talking about David Bowie. He was you know an incredible influence on this band. Queen, Slade all the classics. So you know Zeppelin. All that stuff comes up in this record. And we're just really proud of it."

Absolute Favourite Def Leppard Song?

"It has to be Hysteria. But I really love the new songs but from, yeah, from the standpoint of just an all time. AN all time favourite I love the song Hysteria."
