Hair Metal Podcast: Ep.16: DEF LEPPARD w/ Special Guest...ADAM P. O'BRIEN!

Welcome to the Fandom Podcast Network's special presentation of... THE HAIR METAL PODCAST! 

The Hair Metal Podcast cover bands that reached several levels of popularity and notoriety during the mid to late 1980's "Hair Metal" explosion. We take an in-depth look into the bands that defined the style and sound of Hair Metal, and many other bands that may or may not be categorized as Hair metal, but did reach some popularity during the Hair Metal rush of the 1980's. 

Kevin Reitzel is your host for The Hair Metal Podcast. Kevin's special guest for this Hair Metal Podcast episode, is Adam P. O'Brien Kevin welcomes Adam to the Hair Metal Podcast to discuss one of his favorite bands ... DEF LEPPARD!

Def Leppard formed in 1977 in Sheffield and is considered part of the new wave of British heavy metal movement. Since 1992, the band has consisted of Joe Elliott (lead vocals), Rick Savage (bass, backing vocals), Rick Allen (drums, backing vocals), Phil Collen (guitars, backing vocals), and Vivian Campbell (guitars, backing vocals), which has been the band's longest running line-up. They are one of only five rock bands with two original studio albums selling more than ten million copies in the US. The band were ranked No. 31 in VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" and ranked No. 70 in "100 Greatest Artists of All Time". Def Leppard were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.

Kevin and Adam discuss the origin of Def Leppard in the late 1970's and early 1980's which include their break out years with MTV in the 80's and early 90's. They also discuss the longevity of Def Leppard and how they are more popular than ever now.  Kevin also has a Rock N' Roll T-Shirt check with Adam and and discuss the controversial TV movie "Hysteria - The Def Leppard Story".
