Guitars & Equipment
From a musician’s standpoint, I knew the day that I had heard about his death, Def Leppard would never be the same. I can remember in High School, all fellow guitarists must compete, and we would walk around during break comparing what we had learned the night or week before. One guy said, “Hey… can you play ‘Crazy Train’?” My friend looked at him and said “Yeah, but can you play ‘Bringin’ On The Heartbreak’?”… You should’ve seen the look on his face. I said “Yeah, that’s real talent.” Just as I guessed, Leppards’ sound would never be the same. Never again would we see Steve strutting across the stage, Les Paul Custom hanging at his knees, ripping into the ferocious lead of ‘Die Hard The Hunter’.
