Def Leppard To Re-Record All Of Their Hits

Crazy story here from Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott. Last month he announced that the band would re-record as much of their original music as possible. This comes after a failed agreement between them and their former record label over digital releases.

Elliott tells NPR:

I’ve done it myself: I’ve looked for a certain song where I accidentally bought the re-record and it’s been awful. It’s just been lousily, quickly done for a quick buck. We’re not trying to make a quick buck – we’re actually trying to maintain some kind of dignity in this.

He goes on to say that he doesn’t believe the band will be able to create new versions of every song they ever recorded, but some of the big hits like ‘Bringin’ on the Heartbreak,’ ‘Photograph,’ ‘Hysteria’ and ‘Love Bites’ are well worth the effort.
