Show support for this song by calling and requesting the song at your local rock radio station.
The single was originally the b-side to MOTT THE HOOPLE’s “All the Young Dudes” and is a classic slice of Hunter/Ralphs song writing.

Def Leppard performed at Wembley Stadium for the NFL pre-game show for the first London NFL UK game of 2014 when the Oakland Raiders hosted the Miami Dolphins on 28 September 2014. Video courtesy of the NFL. See all official photos by Ross Halfin HERE
Joe Elliott states “Having most recently visited Wembley in May to watch Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final, I know what the atmosphere in the ground is like for ‘our’ football so I’m really looking forward to performing there before the NFL game and of course soaking up the excitement of the actual match. I can’t wait!”

As many of you know, I’ve been scheduled to start a stem cell transplant and as soon as I got home from tour I began the necessary tests and preparations. I’ll be admitted to hospital soon for all the yucky bits, so in the meantime I’m headed to Target to stock up on cozy pajamas, fresh underwear, and a sackful of car-porn.
Unfortunately, this means that I won’t be able to perform with the band on the upcoming NFL broadcast on Sept. 28th, nor will I be able to do the shows scheduled for Oct/Nov.
While I can’t say that I’m looking forward to the process ahead, I’m very much looking forward to what I feel will be a most successful outcome. Next year will be very busy for Def Leppard with a new album and a world tour, and frankly, I don’t think they would sound as loud without me, so I have no intention of letting the team down!
See you all (with hair!) in 2015. - Viv
