The latest issue of industry magazine Pro Sound News claims that DEF LEPPARD is already in the studio recording its new album. The magazine's monthly grid of "who's in which studio doing what" shows that LEPPARD has been seen at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco recently, supposedly "mixing an upcoming release."Commented DEF LEPPARD frontman Joe Elliott: "Where do they get this stuff from!!?? We don't even start recording until January...we've only been off the road 10 days!! I'm still decompressing, and I bet the other guys are too, we haven't even talked to each other —- let alone record anything, so the chances of us MIXING something are pretty slim!!! Having said that, maybe someone ELSE, like VH1 or something, are remixing some old live stuff, like our appearance at the 'Rock Honors', or whatever? That, of course, I can neither confirm or deny cause I wouldn't know."
