Def Leppard- Pyromania
Somewhere there's a photo of me from my 10th birthday with a huge smile on my face holding up this record. I wanted to put it up on this blog, but I couldn't find it last night. I guess my parents still have it. It's really funny.
I'm not going to write as much as I did last night about this album. We all know it's good. Even if you won't admit to liking Def Leppard, you know this record rules. It's funny that "Photograph" is responsible for me getting into Def Leppard, but when I listen to this album now, I think it's one of the weaker songs on the record. Same with "Rock of Ages". I still like both songs, but they can't hold a candle to such gems as "Stagefright", "Die Hard The Hunter" and "Comin' Under Fire".
This was easily the first album that I used to lip synch to in front of the mirror. Either hairbrush for a microphone or a tennis racket for a guitar. One time my Dad walked in on me doing this and said "What the hell are you doing?" I answering back defiantly, "Practicing". Oh boy. But I did develop some serious front man moves. I can copy anybody from Joe Elliott to Stephen Pearcy to Bruce Dickinson. I still have them all down cold to this day. I can't do the David Lee Roth high kick anymore, but then again, neither can he.
Wow, here's a video for Rock! Rock! (Til You Drop) that I've never seen. Sweet!
