‘Every Song is Different’: Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott Talks New Album [VIDEO]

Joe Elliot recently went on to VH1’s “That Metal Show” to discuss Def Leppard’s new album: ‘It’s all over the place. Every song is different from every other song. We’ve always aimed at that. We hit it for the first time on Hysteria, where we’d done an album that allowed us to go in any direction we wanted to — it wasn’t just purely hard rock or metal.’

Def Leppard will also be going on tour later this summer. You can catch them at The Starlight Theater in Kansas City with Styx and Tesla on August 11.

HBO Releases Extended Trailer for 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Special [VIDEO]

Today, HBO released an extended trailer of the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which the channel will air on May 30th. The clip includes interviews with Ringo Starr, Joan Jett and other new inductees; performers John Legend, Gary Clark Jr., Joe Walsh and Zac Brown also pop up to pay tribute to their heroes.

New footage includes Paul McCartney celebrating his Beatles bandmate Starr with his typical droll humor, which Starr mirrors in his interview with HBO. “You can’t get in until 25 years after you’ve had your first hit. Well I’m way passed that,” he cracks. “But here we are. Peace and love.” Joan Jett is also feted by Miley Cyrus, who thanks the Runaways star for “fighting for our freedom.” After, Jett notes that the ceremony (and her celebrity-packed superjam) brought her “back to the days when everyone was saying, ‘Girls can’t play rock and roll.'”

The 2015 ceremony, which was held on April 18 at Cleveland’s Public Hall, inducted Starr, Lou Reed, Green Day, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, and included collaborative performances by Dave Grohl, Stevie Wonder, Beck, Karen O and more. Grohl, Cyrus, Tommy James and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts jammed to “Crimson & Clover” and Wonder, Legend and Bill Withers played “Lean On Me,” according to Rolling Stone.

It seems Tool’s follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days is moving along after Tool finally settled a multi-year law suit last month. Adam Jones posted pictures and videos to Instagram to prove that’s true.

The first picture shows 10,000 Days engineer Joe Barresi behind a mixing board. The second posting is a video showing Adam Jones playing a “strange” string of notes, possibly giving us a taste of what’s to come.

In an interview in March, Adam Jones said there is one track finished and 10 still in the works.
