Today marks the 23rd year since Steve's passing on 8 January, 1991. Play some classic D.L. loud today in his memory!
The music of DL changed forever when he passed.
Thank you for the fantastic gift of music that you left us all.
i love the Leppard so much and play your songs to make myself feel better.
Vivian is such a great replacement for Steve but the loss will always play heavily in the hearts of true Leppard fans.
Gone but NEVER EVER forgotten
23 years??!!!!!! and still he lives on in our hearts xx
True musicians are hard to find much less listen to anymore and it's sad when you lose a good one, here's to a fantastic musician with a style all of his own. May the stars keep shining on you in heaven. Keep rockin' and god bless.
rip steve love ya always lol
God bless you, Steve. You left behind some of the greatest riffs ever written, but you are still a great influence to the younger generation of musicians. I wish I could have met you and see your performances, but as Joe said in an interview, you left behind something worthwhile. RIP, Mr.Clark.
Switch 625...perfect. Love to you all on this day...xoxo

I have been a Def Leppard fan since On through the night. Although Pyromania was my first album. I being the same age as the band consider myself a true Leppard fan. I miss Steve greatly.As do the rest of the fans..Vivian, you are wonderful . But today , I miss Steve so much and wish he were here. I have recently seen the making of the band...great movie! hoping for more documentaries of the early days and beyond..I will always love Def Leppard!

ESPETACULAR, MESTRE, MUITA SAUDADES.
steamiiiiiiiin' your music never dies!
Wish I had seen him when they opened for Billy Squier in Portland, Maine back in the 80's! Gone but not forgotten...
I can't be the only one with mixed feelings. I hate him for leaving so soon. Selfish of me, I suppose, but it seems very unfair. Anyone will tell you that's how life works. To think of all he's missed out on, and all the times he could have had. I could wax nostalgic, but to me, he was a big part of my life growing up. Def Leppard were a natural, everyday part of my life, until at 17, I walked into class at school and the kids told me he was dead. I thought they were screwing with me, knowing I was a fan. Back then I had a Lepp T-shirt on almost every day. I never went shopping much, and the concert tees added up. I think I nearly got into a fight over it. (Of which I apologized later, when it turned out they were telling the truth after all.)
So much for that. I was one of the first to get Adrenalize, just so I could hear the last 5 notes they used from his recording on the album. (Also, "Tonight" is a killer song.) Back to my mixed feelings on this. It's a stupid, lousy way to go, but I'll always be happy for the brief time he spent here. There are a lot of different music styles, and different musicians, but Def leppard always had a good attitude, positive outlook, and fun, catchy songs. To this day, everything else seems...boring. So throw in Hysteria, dissect the songs, and focus on those amazing riffs that stay with us long after the curtain falls.
He wasn't just a band mate he was your friend. Thoughts and prayers go out to you guys.
I LOVE YOU STEVEN MAYARD CLARK YOU ARE THOUGHT OF OFTEN BY ME AND OTHER FANS WE WILL MISS YOURR SMILING FACE FOR THE REST OF ARE DAYS.
SOMETIME I FIND MYSELF WISHING YOU WHERE HERE TODAY. SOMETIMES I SHED A TEAR FOR YOU I DON;T THINK YOU RELIZED HOW TALENT AND GIFTED YOU TRUELY WHERE. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART FOREVER MISS YOU MORE THEN WORDS CAN EXPRESS.
LOVE ALWAYS, KIMBERLY GREENSTREET
