DEF LEPPARD's 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' Single Certified Gold
According to a posting on The Def Leppard Satellite Of Love, DEF LEPPARD's 1988 hit, "Pour Some Sugar On Me" has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Accociation Of America (RIAA). This marks the first time that a DEF LEPPARD single has been certified for any award. The single, released in 1988, peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 100 singles chart and started an explosion of over a million copies of the "Hysteria" album to be shipped in a single day.
DEF LEPPARD have set a September 20 worldwide release date for their all-covers set, entitled "Yeah!" Guitarist Phil Collen recently told Billboard.com that the song list for the group's all-covers set has yet to be finalized, as the group decided to record more cuts than it originally planned. He confirmed that the album will include "a bunch of stuff — all '70s stuff. Most of it is songs that we grew up with in England. 'No Matter What' by BADFINGER is going to be the leadoff single. We've done 'Waterloo Sunset' by THE KINKS, T. REX, MOTT THE HOOPLE, ROXY MUSIC and THIN LIZZY. And a lot of it is obscure; it's not the standard stuff. It's not like STONES or BEATLES songs."
