Def Leppard filmed their classic Photograph promo video 39 years ago on this day in 1982 in London, England.

The video was filmed at the iconic Battersea Power Station building in central London.

The building had been decommissioned as a power station since the mid 70s. Bought by Apple in 2016 to be their new London headquarters.

The same building where the band filmed the 'Rock Of Ages' video in the same month.

Pink Floyd featured the building on their iconic 'Animals' album cover in 1977.

The shoot date on 2nd December 1982 was also Rick Savage's 22nd birthday and the first of two Lep videos to be shot on band members birthdays.

The video was a huge hit on US MTV in early 1983 and helped propel the success of the single and the 'Pyromania' album on the Billboard charts.

One of many videos to be filmed at the same location as other songs from the same album including 'Rocket' in 1988, the three High 'n' Dry videos in Liverpool 1981, 'Armageddon It'/'PSSOM' in Denver 1988 and 'Slang'/'Work It Out' in the same Los Angeles studio in 1996.
