Rock Candy Magazine - Joe Elliott Interviews

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction/Where does it rank?

"Not at the top, I'll be honest, not yet. Does it resonate with me in a negative way?. Absolutely not. Does it make me stand up with pride the same way as when I heard 'Animal' on the radio for the first time? No. Or when we got our first number one album? No."

"It's the things where there's a union of us and the people who put us where we are, our crowd, that make me feel proud of what we've done. I remember those the most, like the Don Valley show in Sheffield where we had over 45-50,000 people tun up to see us in our home city almost 15 years to the day since we formed. It was crazy!."

The Def Leppard E.P.

"It gave us a massive opportunity. Even the fact it was on vinyl made a difference. Everyone sent cassettes to A&R men and they ended up being paperweights, or just got thrown in the bin. We did three songs, we pressed 1,000 copies on vinyl and put the record in a picture sleeve to grab attention."
