Today’s Blimp Time-Hop
WBLM remembers to legendary Def Leppard guitarist and song writer, Steve Clark on his birthday. He was born on April 23, 1960 near Sheffield, England. His uniquely chunky and circular riffs were a staple in the Def Leppard sound from the time he joined in 1978, until his untimely death in 1991. I feel truly honored to have been able to see him live with Def Lep in Portland on the Hysteria tour in October of 1987. He absolutely brought the authentic rock and roll swagger to the band’s performance with that guitar slung way down low.
That's me in the middle with a black-eyed Steve to my left.
Here's the setlist from that night. Were you there?
