Here is an excerpt:
When 1980s and ’90s chart-topping British rock band Def Leppard first went into the studio in early 2014 to start its first album in seven years, it was as much for the band’s benefit as it was for its fans, guitarist Vivian Campbell says.
He says the band, which has been together nearly 40 years, could be headed toward its last hurrah, and the new disc could re-energized it to continue.
That’s a pretty bold statement for a band that used radio-ready, melodic-rock style to sell nearly 30 million of its four albums from 1981-92. Its 1983 disc “Pyromania” alone sold 10 million and 1987’s “Hysteria” 12 million with songs such as “Photograph,” “Rock of Ages” and “Love Bites.”
