Def Leppard is a rock band that was formed in 1977 in England. The band consisted of Rick Savage, Rick Allen, Joe Elliot, Vivian Campbell, and Phil Collen. Rick Savage was in a band called the Atomic Mass when he was eighteen. He changed the name to Deaf Leopard that he came up in his English Class, then dropped the ‘a’ to make the name, Def Leppard.
Def Leppard released their first album in 1980, which was called, “On Through the Night”. Their second album was released a year later, and was called, “High ‘n Dry”. Their first music video was for the song, “Bringin’ On the Heartbreak”, and was the first heavy metal ever aired on MTV. In 1983, Def Leppard released, “Pyromania”, which featured the single, “Photograph”. That song was turned into a music video, and was the most requested music video on MTV. “Pyromania” was a huge success for Def Leppard as more than 100,000 copies were sold each week.
The drummer, Rick Allen was involved in a car crash, which caused him to lose his left arm. Rick Allen was committed to playing with the band, and designed a custom electronic drum kit that allowed him to play. In 1987, Def Leppard released their fourth album, “Hysteria”. The songs “Pour Some Sugar on Me”, “Animal”, and “Rocket” were hits songs on that album.
In 1991, Steve Clark died in his home from a mixture of prescription drugs and alcohol. The remaining members stayed together to release their fifth album, “Adrenalize”, which reach number one on the United States and United Kingdom Billboard charts.
