Personal Quote:

After you have a hit like Hysteria and you're signed to the corporate machine it becomes an albatross around your neck. As much as our music is anthemic rock'n'roll it's a business at the end of the day. It's stressful and gets harder each time you make a record. See more »


Started making posters for a then fictional, band named Deaf Leopard until meeting Pete Willis, Tony Kenning, and Rick Savage, of Atomic Mass. The band then became Def Leppard, when Sav changed the spelling. See more »
