Really Cool Def Lep Tour Teaser By Jeff Diffner

This video hit Youtube yesterday to support the first night of, and ongoing performances of Def Leppard as they hit the road with a newly re-united Poison and the gods of MTV rock TESLA … (no intended favoritism there, I just like them better than the other two.)

Check out the cool time-lapse capture that Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen‘s drum tech made while the band rehearsed for the tour dates.

Over the next few months, the band Poison will duke it out with each other, fighting and clawing over toilet space and reading material on the can, as it’s the first time in what were told – five years – since they put up with each other for this long. While they were implemental in expanding the view of the Sunset Strip in the 80’s – word is, they all hate each other. They were awesome to see in the 80’s though.

Now Tesla – never to let down a crowd, gets up there and kicks the shit out of the stage, and for me personally, is a big reason to be at this show. Jeff Keith never fails to bring it, and they’ve got original works with diversity for days! They may not pour any sugar on you, but they will douse you with rocks until you beg for more.

Here’s Jeff now!
