- Def Leppard
"Behind the Music" on Def Leppard Sunday night. While reflecting on the
length of the band's career, and what the future may hold, Def Leppard's lead
singer said "When I look at bands like Aerosmith or
the Rolling Stones, these guys are in their fifties, and we're only in our
thirties..." The implication was that he thinks Def Leppard has a lot of work
to do, and he was admiring Aerosmith and the Stones for their longevity and
ability to keep rockin. Earlier in the show, there was also a less flattering
comparison of the Toxic Twins to Def Leppard's "Terror Twins." One thing was
clear: Def Leppard aspires to be as cool as our boyz.

- Steven's feeling better
There have been a few Internet reports that Boston radio stations have reported "Steven spottings" at a movie theater, and a mall...so I guess he's doing well
- The new Ringo Starr album
On to the radio last night they played some songs from the new Ringo album and as i mentioned before Steven was supposed to be on it. They had Ringo
on talking about the album and he talked for a while about Steven. Here's what
"I asked Steven to play drums and, this is not television, but the look on his
face when i asked him was, mighty to behold. But he did and he was
great... and i didn't want to say give me the beat boys, and it was me,
so i said well i'll do this track, but lets have Steve play the
drums...I know he is a drummer and he knows he is a drummer but
when i asked him he said, well i haven't played in a long time and i said well
you know how to ride a bike, get on them."
Then they played "Beat Boys" and Steven was just rippin' it up on the drums.
He also had about a 10 second vocal part and the end of the song, very cool,
the perfect way to end a great rock n roll song.
Then Ringo says:
"Once he (Steven) got there you can't keep him off, thank god, he's just
enthusiastic and he's great and when i decided to do "Love Me Do" , of course there is that great harmonica part, he is just a great player and he eats that harmonica really, half of the time he's playing and half of the time he's screaming through it and it's fabulous."
Then they played "Love Me Do," and great Beatles song, and Steven was just
kickin' some ass with his harmonica. And then they played the rest of the album.
Earlier i said that Steven was going to sing on a few song too
But somebody said that it was changed (and the vocals would get replaced by Tom Petty's) because the record company wouldn't
let Steven do it. But if he is playing drums and
harmonica maybe he is singing after all. Let's hope so.
