DEF LEPPARD Singer: THE DARKNESS Never Should Have Made It In The U.S.

Britain's The Mail On Sunday recently published an article exploring the failures and success stories of British artists trying to make it big in the U.S market. In the story, DEF LEPPARD frontman Joe Elliott is singled out as one of the people in the music industry who feel THE DARKNESS "don't deserve their Stateside success." Elliott is quoted as saying, "If there's ever a band that shouldn't have made it, it's THE DARKNESS. It's so unlikely. It's like tossing a coin and it landing on its edge."
