Def Leppard Goes Glam...new cover album


Recommended Posts

Def Leppard Gets All Covered Up

Their new covers album 'Yeah!' will be released in the spring.

British rockers Def Leppard are set to pay tribute to their favorite tracks by other artists on a new album of covers.

The band has recorded classic tracks like Roxy Music's "Street Life" and "10538 Overture" by Elo for the new album 'Yeah!' which they plan to release this spring.

Guitarist Vivian Campbell tells Rolling Stone magazine that many of the tracks have a glam-rock, T-Rex-type feel to them because the band wanted to emulate Marc Bolan.

He says, "I saw Marc Bolan and T Rex in 1971 on (British pop show) Top Of The Pops and I knew I wanted to play guitar. So most of the songs come from the glam era."

They have released two of the songs from the new album on the British and US version of their new Greatest Hits albums (Waterloo Sunset and No Matter What) and they are great songs. Also I saw them in concert oct. 24 '05 and they performed their version of David Essex's Rock on and did such a great job with it I can't wait for the album to be released!
