single information

Details of the single originally recorded for Spotify and remixed for the 'The Story So Far...The Best Of' album.
A cover of Depeche Mode's classic 'Personal Jesus' from their 1990 album 'Violator'.

Joe Elliott (2018)

"We did a session for them. Just two songs. I won't say any more because I don't want to spoil the surprise for whenever it's gonna get broadcast, but bit of fun. One of ours and a cover of somebody else's stuff."

Phil Collen (2018)

"The studio totally influences your vibe. There's something obviously about the comfort of a studio and the vibe of the people and everything. which was wonderful I gotta say, coming in here. So whenever, whatever studio we go in we're always gonna bring that. there's always gonna be that Def Leppard thing. And we always make it work."

Vivian Campbell (2018)

"They wanted a classic Def Leppard song, which we decided was gonna be 'Hysteria', and something that was a little bit outside of our genre, not a hard rock band. Don't be covering AC/DC or something like QUEEN or whatever. My first choice was ABBA. I thought that we would rock the hell out of ABBA because of our vocals. So I wrote back to everyone. I said, 'Knowing Me, Knowing You' by ABBA. I think we could do a good rock version of it. Plus, there's a little harmony line in it, an instrumental line, that would have been a great rock guitar line. I know it's a bit of a happy song, but I think we could have darkened it up a bit."

"Anyway, that got shot down in flames. But, fortunately, my second suggestion was, 'Why don't we do 'Personal Jesus' by Depeche Mode?' And everyone picked up on that. So, we did it. And, to be honest, it was probably a much, much easier song to do than anything by ABBA. But I still think we could rock the shit out of ABBA some day."
