    Def Leppard Commits the ULTIMATE Blasphemy!!!

    from blabbermouth.net:
    ____________________

    DEF LEPPARD Guitarist: 'We're Not That Far From The BACKSTREET BOYS' - July 24, 2003

    Philip Maramba of Charleston Daily Mail spoke with DEF LEPPARD guitarist Vivian Campbell about the group's decision to work with Per Aldeheim and Andreas Carlsson, who produced hits for BRITNEY SPEARS and the BACKSTREET BOYS, on their latest effort, "X". "We wanted to get some perspective on the sounds that would be accessible for radio play," Campbell explained. "Some people thought it was sacrilege, but if you listen to our work, our vocals are complex. Pop music is strong on vocals. We're not that far from the BACKSTREET BOYS we've just got more guitars."

    Especially when you think back to their very first album "On Through The Night". They were a full-blown NWOBHM band at the time, right up there with Maiden, Saxon and the rest.

    I dealt with them mellowing their sound a little in the 80's, but now to compare themselves to the Backstreet Boys???

    Part of me feels they have to be kidding or being very sarcastic. The Backstreet Boys are has beens now, as well as NSYNC. They can't be that desperate for sales can they?

    I didn't mind their sound being a little more mellow either, but please god, no more "As long as you love me" crap on the radio.

    I'm still going to their show when they come to the Erie County Fair. I don't care what the heck they sound like, I wanna see Joe Elliott!!!!
    Actually, I kind of like The Backstreet Boys, so don't laugh at me please. If Simon reads this, he'll probably sell his ticket and refuse to go though, he HATES The Backstreet Boys. I have to listen to them when he's not around.

    Why are we making a big deal over it? I just don't understand it at all. Maybe I'm a real fan of Def Leppard, because I'm not getting upset over it. I should be throwing out my Def Leppard CDs and tapes I have. Let's all burn our Def Leppard memorbilia and tell those guys we'll boycott them and tell the radio stations NOT to play their music.

    *note I'm being sarcastic*

    Instead of starting a new post, thank you Pagan for reminding me about the advice I gave John. I just carried away just above.

    Molly...remember that advice you gave OPC in that other thread?

    Def Leppard started out as a METAL band. For them to now say they're no different than the BSB is pretty assinine....

    I don't know why everyone is so surprised. That band lost direction years ago, and never got it back.

    I think it's more a matter of people being sickened than surprised

    Dear God, what possessed him to say that I guess when they said "poor some sugar on me" they weren't kidding.
