VIDEO: Def Leppard guest on Tavis Smiley’s PBS program

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott and bassist Rick Savage were the featured guests on Tavis Smiley’s PBS series on Friday, and video of the pair’s appearance is available.

Def Leppard recently launched a summer tour of North America with KISS that will see the pair of classic rock acts hit more than 40 cities across North America before wrapping up in Houston, Texas on August 31.

Th UK rockers regrouped in February for their first writing session of new material to be used for the follow-up to 2008’s “Songs From The Sparkle Lounge.”

The initial meetings yielded a batch of about 12 songs in varying stages of completion, while a second session last month increased that number to 15.

Def Leppard originally thought they would release new music as an EP, but now belive they have enough material for a full album, which they plan to self-produce and make available in 2015.
