Sounds - Online Review Quote
"Def Leppard Newcastle - The section of the Mayfair's balcony that's screened off for use by the mixer and his lighting lads resembles the tube at five o'clock. Friends, mums and dads, friends' mums and dads; everyone's gathered together to share in their boys' glory. A six (not five) figure deal with Phonogram, tours with Sammy Hagar and maybe Ian Gillan. It's all systems go for Def Leppard."
"I'm here, as much as anything, to see what it is that they've got that elevates them above dozens of other similar young heavies up and down the country. If I was hoping for some sort of great insight it didn't come."
