Thread Name: Tone Deaf Leopard (note spelling)
Subject: RE: Tone Def Leppard
Amazing that the original Def Leppard have come in for some criticism, possibly from people who have never even heard them.

Lets see, a group of successful artistes from Sheffield who can 1) play their music without a song sheet, 2) sing in tune, 3) bring lots of joy to generations of admirers. (I used to go to see them when they first started out and my eldest had an album playing in the car when I got in it the other day.)

Not exactly in the genre, but there you go. I love many folk acts, have been to folk clubs and festivals for 30 years or so, played in bands, been booked as a singer songwriter and have enjoyed it. However, I also like many other types of music. In fact, the only thing I have problems with is the usual suspects sticking a finger in their ear and crucifying ancient ditties.

But I don't use this forum to sneer....
