DEF LEPPARD'S JOE ELLIOT TALKS NEXT STUDIO SET

1/24/2013

Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott is hopeful that the band will have time to write its next studio set during their upcoming nine-date Las Vegas run.

Elliott told Billboard that the time off stage during their stand at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino could be just as important as the time on the boards: "This will be the first time in at least 10 years where we're all actually in one room banging out songs from scratch, We don't all live on the same continent, so it's increasingly more difficult for us to just do what people expect a band to do -- wander into a dusty old rehearsal room and go, 'What you got?' Getting together to write an album is an event. So the whole point of this Vegas thing when we're not on stage is to attack pieces of work we have that aren't finished songs -- 'I've got this riff.' 'Great, let's play around with it.' I'm sure everybody's got some individual ideas, and we'll go from there."

Def Leppard kicks off its nine-show Vegas run on March 22nd.
