Yesterday was the 35th anniversary of Def Leppard's Pyromania.
With Pyromania Def Leppard became a huge band in America, propelled by the hooky and radio friendly Photograph. They were good looking guys too, at least in a 1983 sort of way, and MTV mainstays. Our older sister bought Pyromania.
Rock Rock was the opening track and hearkened back to the band's glam-rock roots. While Photograph was pop, the band kept its' edge with classics like Rock of Ages. Billy Get Your Gun is a lesser known track with some great lyrics.
By the way, the band is touring this summer, and will perform Hysteria in its' entirety, which is totally cool. We'll be there.
