DEF LEPPARD RELEASE VIDEO FOR “MAN ENOUGH”
Def Leppard have released a video for the song Man Enough from their latest self titled album.
Guitarist Phil Collen told TeamRock, “I had this bass riff floating around my head, and I wanted it to have a similar vibe to Billy Jean by Michael Jackson — almost a disco vibe. I didn’t know what it was going to be called, then I played it to [singer] Joe [Elliott] we went to [drummer] Rick Allen’s 50th birthday, and he said, ‘Shit! I’ve got a great idea for this song! And it’s called Are You Man Enough To Be My Girl. People have said it reminds them of Another One Bites The Dust by Queen. It has this dancey appeal. Our song All Night was a bit like that, and Excitable on Hysteria. But I think this is the first time we’ve really made it work. It just fell into place, and I think that’s because we didn’t restrict ourselves. Every song on the album’s like that. It was, like, ‘F–k everybody. This album was done for us.’ It wasn’t a business venture. We really didn’t care what anybody thought. We went to town on it; it was a lot of fun.”
