PYROMANIA - Happy 30th!

01/20/2013 - 13:30

 

Today marks the 30th anniversary of the release of DL'S album PYROMANIA.  Here is a special note from Joe Elliott on the album.
 
Wow ..... I can't believe it's 30 years since Pyromania came out!  It had been a labour of love to make (little did we know in comparison to Hysteria, it was a piece of cake!).... Multiple studios in London, one guitarist out, one guitarist in, equipment breakdowns, tapes turning transparent because of the thousands of times they were rewound & fast forwarded for multiple overdubs, but we found our sound on this record with the help of a great producer in Mutt Lange, the new studio technology that we eagerly embraced (unlike many of our peers) and an incredible enthusiasm to "make a record no one else had ever made" whether we did or didn't isn't important, what is, is that we had made the record WE wanted to make, it had been percolating in our DNA for 6 years!!…. we finally sounded like the "us" we wanted to be!!! - J x
