DEF LEPPARD Guitarist's New Year's Resolution: To Finish A New Album In The First Half Of 2007

DEF LEPPARD members Joe Elliott, Vivian Campbell and Phil Collen have revealed their New Year's resolutions via the following holiday messages on the band's web site:

Joe: "My New Year's resolutions? Phew! Guess you have to make them..... Stop biting my nails, don't drink as much, watch my football team win the premiership... No, seriously, it would be to try and make a fuckin' great record!" (For an additional audio message from Joe, click here.)

Phil: "Merry Christmas, happy holidays and all the best for 2007 for everyone! And, here's a kind of resolution: we're going to try and get an album recorded and finished in 2007. That'll be a new one for us!"

Vivian: "Season's greetings and best wishes to all LEPPARD fans across the globe! Wherever you are, we wish you a peaceful holiday and a great new year ahead! And speaking of the New Year, here are my resolutions for 2007: firstly, I really, really want to unpack my suitcase and feel like I'm not traveling — at least for a little while. Secondly, I intend to keep the band beholding to our earlier agreement to finish a new album in the first half of 2007. The naysayers don't believe that we can do it, but we'll prove them wrong. There's much excitement and anticipation about the album, too, as I believe that we'll actually make a better record through working to a deadline rather than having the usual open-ended arrangement. Look forward to seeing you all next year!"
