Def Leppard - Women

After Pyromania ended it's glorius run of success in 1983, Def Leppard was fell by a series of misfortunes, including drummer Rick Allen losing his left arm in an automobile accident. His bandmates refused to move on without him, so they waited 4yrs for him to recover and learn how to drum with just his remaining right arm. This is one of the reasons I personally love Def Leppard, loyalty to their buddy.

The question was, would the hiatus and misfortune to Allen cause the band to slip. They released the Hysteria album in 1987 and this song was their first hit off the album, reaching #7. Looked as though Def Leppard picked right up where they left off.

I'll be typin' at ya later,
