Def Leppard

With 100 million records sold worldwide and two prestigious Diamond Awards to their credit, Def Leppard continues to be one of the most important forces in rock music. Over the course of their career, the band has produced a series of classic groundbreaking albums that set the sound for generations of music fans and artists alike. For more than 30 years the band’s concerts have become must-see events and have quickly made them an institution in the touring industry, as they continue to sell out arenas worldwide. For Collen, this illustrious career dates back to age 14 when he heard the electric guitar at a Deep Purple rock concert back home in England. He joined Def Leppard in 1982 during the Pyromania album recording sessions.
