Musical Interlude

Another blast from the past!

Rewind back to my high school days. Def Leppard was huge back then, one of the most popular bands in the world. They were also the first rock band to take a 360° stage on their world tour. The Hysteria and the following Adrenalize tours with a similar set-up are among the very best live performances I have ever seen. Both were played in front of a packed house at the old Montreal's Forum.

Ah, the good old days!;-) Every time I hear this song, I turn up the volume and sing along!

A bit of trivia: "Pour Some Sugar on Me" remained undefeated for over 50 consecutive weeks on the TV show Combats des Clips on Musique Plus circa 1987-88. What clip finally won over them (there was a different song going up against it every Friday night)? "One" by Metallica, which lost the following week. . .

Two years ago we took our two daughters to see them in concert. There is nothing cuter than a 7 year old sitting on her daddy's shoulders screaming "WE LOVE YOU DEF LEPPARD" and making little rock hands.

And "Pour Your Sugar on to me." Is still the most popular song at strip clubs.
