20 years ago today, myself & Phil guested for the first time in the Spiders From Mars at the Hammersmith Odeon as part of the Mick Ronson memorial show, he died 21 years ago today. This gig led to the formation of the Cybernauts 3 years later when we opened the Mick Ronson Memorial Stage in his hometown of Hull, UK. - time flies ……Joe Elliott

On this day 23 April in 1960, Def Leppard co-founding guitarist Steve Clark was born in Sheffield (UK). Steve would have been 54 today. Gone but never forgotten!
"This tribute video to Steve took me back to the days when he was THE rock star, he owned the stage. I was lucky to have known him, worked with him, but most of all we were great friends and I was proud to be taking care of his guitars. He was a diamond character, I will always remember him for the unabashed respect/love of life we shared. We all miss you pal” - Malvin Mortimer (Friend & Tour Manager)
