Def Leppard: "Backstage Look" - 39 Min Film
It´s more than 30 years since the "On Through the Night" album, with the new one "Mirrorball" set for June release. In the film below you can follow Def Leppard through their amazing career.
While many of their peers were abandoning '70s metal and arena rock to hop the punk/new wave bandwagon, Def Leppard smartly stripped the earlier era's music of its excesses, bolstered it with energetic, pop-savvy hooks and quickly found itself the vanguard of the UK's new metal revival and one of the '80s most spectacularly successful rock acts.
This film focuses on the familiar hits of their early MTV, platinum-selling prime, though the inclusion of the video edit/remixes of "Pour Some Sugar On Me" and "Rocket" attempts to cast them in a more club-friendly contemporary groove.
