I’m A Drummer! Reliving Hysteria Part IX

First, and foremost, I’d like to dedicate this song to the boys of Def Leppard and to the Hysteria production, all the cast and crew, the people of Sheffield, the people who bought D.L’s albums over the years and the people who still blare “Pour Some Sugar On Me” from their cars.

Because, although we’ve come to the end of the road, still I can’t let go. It’s so natural. You belong to me. I belong to you.

Now, without further ado, episode 9:


What highlights!?? This is… a travesty! This is 4 minutes worth of “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” which the writers, directors and producers clearly see as the “money shot.” It’s all been building towards seeing the fake Def Leppard play Def Leppard’s biggest hit. It’s like “P.S.S.O.M.” is their Hamlet. Then, as soon as the song ends, cue music left over from Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, take a bow and boom, we out.

No death scene? End on an up note? Clearly this was made by Americans, not the British.

So I guess I need to finish off the story properly by saying that Steve Clark drank himself to death by the age of 30. And Def Leppard never recovered as a band. Washed up. Put out to dry on the line.

Let’s look at some photos and remember the good times, shall we?

If that’s not enough for you, you can find about eight more montages on YouTube. Personally, I’ve moved on. Now I’m all about the Boyz To Men videos.
