You can’t judge a band by its cover. Apparently, Def Leppard tricked their fans into thinking they were a cover band called Ded Flatbird. The show went down during their Las Vegas VIVA! Hysteria residency and Antimusic is reporting that fans weren’t just pissed–they told the band they “sucked.”
Phil Collen told AXS Live that some people thought they were just a “crap cover band.”
Some people would actually go, ‘You guys suck,'” elaborated Collen.
Def Leppard is promoting their VIVA! Hysteria Concert film which features them performing “Good Morning Freedom”–which they haven’t played live since 1980.
Now the band is offering a free download of their fake cover set–just go to their website and sign up for their e-mail list.
