. Elliott delivered an address on DEF LEPPARD . "These songs we've written over the years have always been our main priority, and although there was a tragic sense of tragedy around every corner, we just did not allow it, but it's true it always seemed to be us made musical progress, life would knock us down a bit. "Pyromania" is a frenzied success … then Rick has a life-changing accident other side stronger. "Hysteria" has brought us the worldwide success we've always longed for … and then we've lost Steve and came out on the other hand stronger people And that's how it has been throughout our career, so here's the facts, if alcoholism, car accidents and cancer could not kill us, the nineties would not have a damned chance.
