Def Leppard Formed This Month In 1977

Def Leppard was formed this month in 1977. Joe Elliott says he missed the bus and ran into Pete Willis. They had the “starting a band” discussion and Joe became lead singer of Atomic Mass. Pete says Joe stopped by to buy an amplifier for his guitar. Pete could tell he would be a great frontman and asked if he wanted to try singing for his band. Either way, they changed their name to Def Leppard and history was made this month in 1977.
