Hoover's reports that DEF LEPPARD bassist Rick Savage has sold his Ecclesall home in Sheffield, United Kingdom for a reported 1.6 million pounds (approximately $3.1 million) — which was "a lot less than he wanted," according to the report.
Jonathan Cohen of Billboard.com reported in December that DEF LEPPARD will begin recording its next studio album later this month at frontman Joe Elliott's house in Dublin. Basic ideas were hashed out on the road during the band's extensive tour in support of last year's covers album "Yeah!" , a first for DEF LEPPARD.
"We've got about five or six songs on the go, and there'll be 11 or 12 on the final version," guitarist Phil Collen told Billboard.com "We're trying to get it out for next summer, which for us would be amazing. But we've never been this far along. We come off tour, wait six months, then we start writing. We've already got that sorted out.
Collen said the songs thus far have "absolutely" been influenced by the process of making "Yeah!", which featured DEF LEPPARD's spin on songs popularized by THIN LIZZY, THE FACES and MOTT THE HOOPLE. "We did that so quick," he said. "It was raw, and it didn't demand we sit around for months or years. That really inspired us."
