Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott’s side project Down N’ Outz has a video for their new song, England Rocks. The song is obviously modeled after Cleveland Rocks, but we’ll still take it.
Have a watch, after the jump!
On a side note, reportedly the guys in Def Leppard have decided to take a year off and regroup.
Joe said, “We’re taking a year off. I’m doing this (new band Down ‘N Outz) because I have the time. After you have a hit like Hysteria and you’re signed to the corporate machine it becomes an albatross around your neck. As much as our music is anthemic rock ‘n’ roll it’s a business at the end of the day. It’s stressful and gets harder each time you make a record. No one’s comparing this to Hysteria, it’s got nothing to do with it. It’s a refreshing change. It’s like being a teenager in a 50-year-old body.”
We’ll be waiting for Def Leppard’s comeback!! In the meantime, what do you think of his new side project? I can dig it.
