DEF LEPPARD Singer Featured In QUEEN Documentary

December 3, 2004

DEF LEPPARD frontman Joe Elliott has reportedly contributed substantially to the BBC3 documentary "The Story Of Bohemian Rhapsody", which is scheduled to air this weekend. In the documentary, which is dedicated entirely to QUEEN's magnum opus song, Joe talks about how when was working in a factory in Sheffield, he heard "Bohemian Rhapsody" and dreamed of becoming a rock star. Joe also mentions driving around with his mates in Sheffield and headbanging to the song — "Wayne's World" style! Additionally, there are also clips of Joe perfoming "Tie Your Mother Down" at the 1992 Freddie Tribute Aids Awareness show.

"The Story Of Bohemian Rhapsody" will be broadcast on BBC3 on Saturday, December 4 (10:30 p.m.) and Sunday, December 5 (1:25 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.) and will be repeated on BBC2 over Christmas. More information is available at
