Def Leppard unleashes Hysteria
Rob Tannenbaum, Rolling Stone, 10 September 1987
DEF LEPPARD'S album Pyromania, released in 1983, sold 6 million copies in the U.S. alone. It's no surprise, then, that people ask Def Leppard bassist Rick Savage for his autograph. The only problem is that when they approach Savage these days, it's often because they think he's Jon Bon Jovi. When you've spent most of the last four years hidden in recording studios, people forget who you are.
