Def Leppard Re-record Back Catalogue For Record Label Revenge
Frontman Joe Elliot explained "We just sent them a letter saying: 'No matter what you want, you are going to get 'no' as an answer, so don't ask.'" He added "That's the way we've left it. We'll just replace our back catalogue with brand new, exact same versions of what we did." The band have already recorded new versions of Rock of Ages and Pour Some Sugar On Me, to coincide with the Tom Cruise-starring movie adaptation of the musical, which features those songs. Elliott explained to the Associated Press "Our work is not available on any digital domain, except for the last [live] album . because [of] a catalogue issue with the record label. We just wanted studio versions of those songs available for this summer."
He does admit, though, that it will not be easy for the band to recreate the vintage sounds of old. "Where am I going to find a 22 year old voice," he ponders. "I had to sing myself into a certain throat shape to be able to sing that way again."
