Join Def Leppard on the Rock N Rock Channel via TalkShopLive as they discuss their new album; Diamond Star Halos. Chat with the group and ask them anything! Diamond Star Halos is Def Leppard’s first new album since their chart-topping self-titled record in 2015. It features 15 tracks including the anthemic, stadium-ready singles, “Kick” and “Fire It Up,” with guest vocals from Alison Krauss on “This Guitar,” and “Lifeless.” The title references T. Rex’s “Bang a Gong (Get It On)” with nods to him, David Bowie, and Mott The Hoople across the album.
“Just heard the tragic news about Taylor and having known him for about 30 years this hit home pretty hard. Taylor was the sweetest, funniest guy so I watched with joy and excitement as he progressed from working in a local music store, to playing with Alanis Morissete and ultimately joining up with Dave and the Foos. His talent grew exponentially as did his success but he always remained just like that kid I would see at Laguna beach with his boogie board. He will be incredibly missed. Much love to his family and band mates.” ❤️ – Phil
“I’ve just woken up to the horrible news of Taylor Hawkins’s passing. I’m in a state of shock and sadness. He was the epitome of the modern day rock star and an inspiration to kids everywhere, including this rather old one. Deepest sympathy to his family, friends and fans. Gone too soon but too good for us.” RIP Taylor – Sav
“I just woke up to my phone buzzing like crazy … I can’t believe it …. Farewell to THE best modern drummer & free spirit on the planet, I’m devastated.” – Joe
