Def Leppard singer’s Down N Outz release One Of The Boys pop-up video

Down N Outz, the Mott The Hoople-inspired side project of Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott, have released a pop-up version of their video for “One Of The Boys”, a trtack from their latest album, “The Further Adventures Of…”

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 recently 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, which opens December 5 in Bristol.

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.
