RonJonSurfer Posted January 10, 2006 Report Share Posted January 10, 2006 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."
