40 Years Ago DEF LEPPARD Filmed The ROCK OF AGES Video In London
Def Leppard filmed their classic Rock Of Ages promo video 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 Photograph video on 2nd December.
Pink Floyd featured the building on their iconic 'Animals' album cover in 1977.
The shoot date on 8th December 1982 was also Phil Collen's 26th birthday and the second of two Lep videos to be shot on band members birthdays.
Like 'Photograph' video was another big hit on US MTV in mid 1983.
