Def Leppard singer’s Down N Outz announce new bassist

Down N Outz, the Mott The Hoople-inspired side project of Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott, have announced the addition of bassist Share Ross to the band.

Ross was previously a member of Vixen and the short-lived supergroup Contraband.

The bassist will be on hand for Down N Outz’ fall UK tour in support of their latest album, “The Further Adventures Of....”

The 2-week, 10-date run start December 5 in Bristol.

Down N Out recently released a video for their latest single, “One Of The Boys.”

The song originally appeared on Mott The Hoople’s fifth studio album, 1972’s “All The Young Dudes.” The tune was also featured as the b-side to the title track when it was released as a single.

Down N Outz
– who play only Mott-releated tunes (including songs by Mott, Ian Hunter and British Lions – were formed specifically to open a series of 2009 reunion shows for Mott The Hoople at London’s Hammersmith Odeon.

“The Further Adventures Of…” is the band’s third project, following 2010’s debut album, “My Re-Generation”, and the “Live At Hammersmith Apollo” DVD recorded during the 2009 shows.

Elliott and Def Leppard are currently playing shows on a summer tour of North America with KISS.
