Joe Elliott of Def Leppard celebrated his 60th birthday Thursday August 1st, and on Wednesday night in Calgary, he explained that he's not a grandpa, he is in fact a rock star, in case you forgot. You can check out the video of the crowd singing to him and the band performing below.
When he was asked about what the key is to Def Leppard's success he said, "We learnt along the way that you don't get gifted with this. You might be born with a musical talent, but you have to apply that gift. We learnt a long, long, long time ago that it's hard work that gets you anywhere."
Def Leppard was inducted into the Rock N' Roll Hall Of Fame in March, 14 years after they were made eligible.I would dare say it's not just hard work but also patience that has seen them through.
You can see Def Leppard live, at our iHeartRadio Music Festival in Vegas September 20th and 21st. Get your tickets at AXS.COM now!
