Homeskoolin’ Sunday Night Bonus Jam, “Lead Leopard”

00:00 - Def Leppard - "Bringin' On the Heartbreak"

Ya’ know friends, they don’t write ‘em like they used to…takin you back to 1981 with another Mutt Lange creation that stands the test of time.

I have always heard that the AMAZING backing vocals on this track were all actually performed by Mutt himself (uncredited on the album liner notes of course)….

I’m not on the instagram…but i wanted to tell you guys that you should check out what Dean Deleo is doing on there recently. He has been putting up videos where he goes through the Trip The Witch record track by track and shows you some of the instruments he used and some of the parts he played on the record.

Basically a much higher quality much more tasteful and professional version of what I did a few weeks back when i had the C19….and i went through the tracks blabbering on about how hungover i was.

Thanks for watching the show kids

The young lady singing in the first part of the video is Laci Kaye Booth...she won one of those TV singing shows...super nice gal, she told me she was from Texas, and she was aghast when i told her i was from Cleveland, like most people are.
