Def Leppard In Conversation at Royal Festival Hall
16 May 2023
Last night, Def Leppard joined Michael Hann at the Royal Festival Hall to discuss Definitely: The Official Story of Def Leppard
and celebrate the UK publication on Thursday 18th May. The packed hall had fans travelling as far as New Zealand and Mexico to hear the band speak about their monumental journey, from staying at their parents' houses for local gigs, reflecting on their losses and lessons, as well as their sudden rise to stardom and signing contracts while Rick Allen was only 15 years old.
'We were all musicians and we're doing the best we could. We had dreams and ambitions. We literally had nothing. But, what we did have was parents who had a house that we could crash on the couch of.' - Joe Elliott
