Def Leppard's Joe Elliot On "All The World's A Stage"

Def Leppard's first ever live album, Mirrorball, is set for release on June 7.  Last week while promoting the album on Bob Coburn's Rockline, singer Joe Elliot included Rush's All The World's A Stage when discussing "career making live albums".

The first topic of discussion, Elliot states "Notoriously the live album had much better versions than the studio record," and cites live albums by Peter Frampton, Thin Lizzy, UFO, KISS, Rush and Cheap Trick as examples.  "For people in our generation, they absolutely were career breakers...Rush broke England on All The World's A Stage, and for us growing up as kids in England, these albums started people's careers off, then you'd go back and get the studio albums, and you'd listen to them and go 'oh dear, they're not as good as the live albums'".  To be fair, however, he does conclude with "I think it's what you hear first is what you get used to."  You can listen to the interview here.
