DEF LEPPARD's JOE ELLIOTT Guests On 'Rockline' (Audio)

DEF LEPPARD frontman Joe Elliott was the featured guest on the March 19 edition of the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" with host Bob Coburn. You can now listen to the program at RocklineRadio.com.

As previously reported, DEF LEPPARD and KISS have announced one of the hottest double bills of the summer, with the bands joining forces to hit both arenas and sheds all over North America. The tour kicks off on June 23 in West Valley, Utah at the USANA Amphitheater and winds down on August 31 in Woodlands, Texas at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.

The two bands held a joint press conference on L.A.'s Sunset Strip at the House Of Blues. According to The Pulse Of Radio, Elliott shed light on how the two bands actually came together. "One and one make three in these situations. Two great bands going out together. There will be no dead time — there will be no dead air space. Y'know, it'll be, hits, hits, hits.

"'Bout two years ago, myself and Gene [Simmons] did a little tour of South America, under the guise of the ROCK N' ROLL ALL STARS — a bunch of guys from GUNS N' ROSES and BILLY IDOL, and what have you. And other than trying to out-do each other with obscure British bands like the IDLE RACE and the PINK FAIRIES — who knew each band better — we discussed doing this as well; that one day DEF LEPPARD and KISS would tread the boards together, as it were, and it's finally happened, which is fantastic."

DEF LEPPARD released a Deluxe Edition of its 1996 classic album "Slang" across multiple formats through its own Bludgeon Riffola label on February 10.
