Wow! there’s a lot of Talkin’ Rock going on today!
Joe Elliott is up first to talk about Def Leppard’s new album, Diamond Star Halos. That drops on May 27th. He talks about the title, writing it and more. We discuss the Rock hall and he tells me about singing on stage with “Def Leppard Sucks” guy, Kid Rock at a big event years ago.
Then, around the 11:00 minute mark, it’s Luke Morley from Thunder. They have a new, double album called Dopamine coming out on April 29th. We talk about the album, the political tinge to it and more. Why didn’t they become bigger in the U.S.A.? He talks about that, and that’s just the beginning.
Finally, around the 31:00 minute mark, it’s Vinnie from Sponge. They have a pub crawl coming up this Friday. Check the link here for more info. He fills us in on what he has going on in all of his bands, including The Lucid with former Megadeth bass player, David Ellefson.
