Def Leppard – The Artist
Def Leppard are an English rock band formed in 1977 in Sheffield as part of the new wave of British heavy metal movement. Since 1992, the band has consisted of Joe Elliott (lead vocals), Rick Savage (bass, backing vocals), Rick Allen (drums, backing vocals), Phil Collen (guitars, backing vocals), and Vivian Campbell (guitars, backing vocals), which has been the band’s longest running line-up. The band’s strongest commercial success came between the early 1980s and the early 1990s. As one of the world’s best-selling music artists, Def Leppard have sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
Love Bites – The Song
“Love Bites” is a power ballad written and recorded by the English rock band Def Leppard in 1987 on the album Hysteria. When Robert John “Mutt” Lange originally brought the song to the band’s attention, it was a country ballad, which the band thought sounded like nothing they had done before. The band then added power rock elements and emotive backing vocals similar to those used in R&B ballads at the time. The title “Love Bites” was originally used for a very different song that was eventually re-titled “I Wanna Be Your Hero”, and which appeared as a Hysteria B-side and later on the album Retro Active.
The Bitten Heart – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a a loving heart but with a bite taken from it with teeth marks clearly visible. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
