Obituary: Steve Clark — Hard Rock Hero
Adam Sweeting, The Guardian, 10 January 1991
THE DEATH of Def Leppard's guitarist Steve Clark, aged 30, on Tuesday morning was the latest disaster to strike the Sheffield group. On New Year's Eve, 1984, drummer Rick Allen lost an arm in a car accident, but subsequently learned to play with an entirely new technique. During the recording of their 12 million-selling album Hysteria, their producer smashed his leg in another road crash.
