VIDEO: Def Leppard go unplugged at Rolling Stone

Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen are doing a bit of press for their upcoming live album, “Mirrorball,” as well as to promote their summer tour with Heart.

When the two stopped by Rolling Stone magazine recently, they played a couple of stripped-down acoustic versions of two of their band's biggest hits, "Hysteria" and "Pour Some Sugar on Me."

Elliott and Collen also sat down with RS’s David Fricke for an interview, talking to the guys about their intense love of glam rock, why they waited so long to release a live album and the positivity in the band's latest tunes.

Leppard return to the road in June with a couple of Irish gigs, headline the Download Festival, and then hit the US for a summer tour.
