Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott still loves the 80’s

“The 80’s are mocked by everyone in the media, mostly for mullets and stupid shell suits and that kind of stuff. But there was more to the decade than meets the eye. The fact is, it was the golden age. We had MTV. If you had a decent song, everybody knew it within five minutes.  And whether it was me leaping off the drum riser in slow motion wearing the Union Jack, or ZZ Top’s cars and furry, spinning guitars you just don’t forget those things.”
