I'll be honest, the news that Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott is starting his own beer is only interesting to me insofar as it allows me to trot out some old jokes that I still enjoy all the time: "What has ten legs and nine arms and sucks? Def Leppard." Also, "I'd give my right arm to play drums in Def Leppard." Funny stuff, right? Well, okay. So back to Elliott:
Says Elliott: “Over the years I’ve noticed a lot of musicians putting their names to a variety of wines etc which, as nice as a glass of red or white is, well, it’s not very rock and roll is it?!
Good point, dude. His beer will be launching tomorrow, and is a pilsner. It will almost certainly be produced by Mutt Lange. [Daily Swarm]
