Def Leppard's Joe Elliot is calling Stuck in the '80s

4

August

The video for Def Leppard's Photograph doesn't hold up as well as the song itself, but you still played it anyway, didn't you?

Still, was there ANYTHING cooler back in 1983 that Joe Elliot in that sleeveless Union Jack t-shirt? My god. Who didn't try buying one back then? Def Leppard's concert tees were even designed the same way. If I had one now, I'd wear it to work Friday, because that's the day Elliot is calling Stuck in the '80s for an interview!

Ohmigod, ohmigod, ohmigod. Mind going blank. Pulse now racing. (That could be the liverwurst and nacho cheese hoagie I had for breakfast.) So many questions, so little time. As always, feel free to recommend your own questions for us to fire away at Joe. Poor guy doesn't know what he's in for, because co-host Sean Daly and I aren't merely casual rock journalists. We're fans, baby!

Meanwhile, if you want to catch Def Leppard live on tour, click here for the latest dates. They play with Poison and Cheap Trick here in Tampa at the Ford Amphitheatre on Aug. 14. Is that a Friday night? Good heavens. That's trouble. But it gives us just enough time to go find those beloved Union Jack t-shirts!
