It looks like we're finally getting a follow-up to the 2010 release Tattoos & Tequila. Apparently Vince Neil is working on a new solo album and is already crowd-testing some of those songs. I just wish he'd perform songs from his Exposed album!
The Def Leppard Cruise, dubbed Hysteria on the High Seas was this past weekend. Apparently things didn't really go as planned. First off, and most horrific, is that Jimmy Bain of Last In Line and Rainbow and DIO fame actually died on the boat. I saw the reports of his death and didn't put it together that he died while on the cruise. Just terrible.
Then, apparently Joe Elliott got laryngitis - meaning he literally had no voice - and thus couldn't perform during Def Leppard's headline set. Eric Martin and Kip Winger stepped in and performed with Def Leppard. A clip of them singing is below.
Also, if all that wasn't bad enough, the weather was bad and ports were closed.
