Pobre chaval, creo que está desesperado porqué el disco está siendo un fiasco:
During yesterday's (Friday, June 6) press conference at the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg, Sweden, DEF LEPPARD singer Joe Elliott
was asked how his band managed to avoid getting caught up in the whole
"glam-rock" scene of the '80s even after citing such image-oriented
artists as MICK RONSON, DAVID BOWIE and T.REX as major influences.
you actually look at the way that the 'glam' bands, if you want to call
it that, from Los Angeles dressed themselves up, they totally missed
the point," Elliott replied. "When English glam bands from the '70s came on 'Top of the Pops'
[long-running British music chart television program], it was almost an
afterthought to what they were actually doing — music always came
first, and then they'd be like, 'What are we gonna wear?' . . . Bowie
was very image-driven, and maybe the music came second, but a lot of
the other bands, it was always about the music — the image thing was
just something that they did to just upstage other bands on 'Top of the Pops';
that's what they used to do. So we were never driven to do the mascara
thing or whatever these bands did. They didn't have any substance
musically, I don't think, in comparison to us, so we didn't feel we
needed to do it. Bands that do that are doing it to cover up the fact
that there is no substance in their music. The only band — and I'm not
saying it because we're here — the only band that did pull it off was
[Finland's] HANOI ROCKS. I thought HANOI ROCKS were a good band, and they looked… Michael Monroe [HANOI frontman] was one of the best… I would have shagged him. [Laughs] I like Michael, I think he's sexy, and I'm not gay. And I think Andy McCoy [HANOI guitarist] does the best kind of Keith Richards... so much better than MÖTLEY CRÜE or POISON or any of those bands. They [HANOI ROCKS] were real — the rest of the guys, it was all a bit fake for me."
