Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott and guitarist Phil Collen recently sat down at the Sun headquarters to field questions from fans online. Asked if ‘X’ was aimed more at pop fans or rock fans, Phil said, “It is aimed at both. When we recorded Hysteria the plan was to do a rock version of Thriller and have hit singles which crossed over. It made rock music palatable to a lot of people who wouldn’t necessarily have been listening to rock music. I think that our new album is carrying on in that tradition. I think we didn’t do that in 1990s, we had a few albums out but I don’t think we succeeded. But on X I think we really do – I think it has enough diversity so it’s rock when it wants to be and pop when it wants to be.”
