Def Leppard released Hysteria 26 years ago yesterday. That fact just stuns me.
Hysteria is hugely important to me. I can remember playing the album during a lot of important times in my life. And "Animal" alone has gotten me through more brutally long days at work than just about any other song ever recorded.
Next to Aerosmith, Def Leppard is my favorite band. It's been that way for pushing three decades now. I can't imagine that fact ever changing.
