Long story short... I had an 8x10 photo I wanted signed. The hotel didn't like me loitering across the street so they let me up to the rooftop pool, Joe signed my picture (he was pissed that they let me up), and Phil said hello & asked if I was coming to the show. And then I left. I don't know anything they did late 80s-today. I know they did a Kinks cover, which I think I heard
Is that the even that inspired him to sing, "I don't want your photograph"? Were you that annoying, Lila? And do you still have it?

I agree they were great, but how could that be with U2 arguably at their peak at that point? Did you get into them later?

Hahaha Beav is not really a U2 fan, buddy!


Btw, Gods Of War and more so, White Lightning belong in the severely underrated Leppard songs list.

Uh, Gabe, Beav is not a U2 fan. He just happened to come across this forum one day, and we all wish he hadn't.

I know he's a U2 fan. I have proof.

Shit. Now that I think of it, I'm thinking of another well known poster who I met in NY last tour.

So scratch the proof part.

But noone in their right mind would put up with this place unless they were....

Def Leppard songs I like a lot:

Stagefright
Photograph
Animal
Hysteria

There are others that I enjoy, but these are my four favorites.

And, Gabe, Beav is not a U2 fan at all, but, he does know some songs. He's also a dick.

Uncool? Def Leppard? I think not, they have some terriffic tunes, just sound a little dated and very much of their time now...

No, the song was out before I asked for his precious autograph. And yes, I think I have the picture buried in the closet somewhere. You want proof? You want PROOF? You can't handle the proof!


























Oh, and Zoots, those latter videos (songs) did nothing for me
Give me some Rock Brigade! YouTube - Def Leppard - Rock Brigade
