Markus Goldman of Philadelphia's WMMR conducted an interview with DEF LEPPARD frontman Joe Elliott last Friday, March 21. Joe spoke for over an hour about the band's forthcoming album, "Songs from the Sparkle Lounge", the old records, NWOBHM, how he met Ron Wood, the Mick Ronson tribute record, the VH1 movie and a lot more.

DEF LEPPARD's new studio album, "Songs from the Sparkle Lounge", is scheduled for release on April 29 via Bludgeon Riffola/Island/UMe.

The 11-track "Songs From The Sparkle Lounge" is DEF LEPPARD's first album of brand new material since 2002's "X" and begins yet another remarkable new chapter in the band's 30-year recording career. Recorded last year during month-long stints at lead singer Joe Elliott's Dublin studio, the album's title refers to a backstage area called The Sparkle Lounge on DEF LEPPARD's 2006 tour where the band would go to write songs.
