Joe Elliott Calls Def Leppard Biopic ‘Biggest Pile of S— Ever Made’

Joe Elliott said he fears no one would want to make a biopic about Def Leppard following the 2001 TV movie that he called “the biggest pile of shit ever made.” Hysteria – The Def Leppard Story was produced by VH1 and was described as “the true story of one of the most successful pop-metal bands of the ‘80s.” It followed the band through the firing of Pete Willis and the hiring of Phil Collen , Rick Allen ’s car crash , Steve Clark ’s addiction issues and the making of blockbuster album Hysteria .
