Exclusive: Def Leppard’s entire catalog to stream beginning Friday
Def Leppard has finally given Spotify, iTunes/Apple Music and Amazon and seven other digital music platforms the OK to Pour Some Sugar on listeners: The British hard rock act’s entire catalog will be available to stream on Friday.
What took them so long?

Plus, Elliott, 58, and his bandmates also wanted to wait out “the digital streaming thing” a little and get a better sense of whether the business model was here to stay or a short-term fad. (He notes that Def Leppard were also iTunes holdouts who didn’t put any of their tracks online until their first live album, 2011’s Mirror Ball.)
