Book Review: Def Leppard: The Definitive Visual History

dlDef Leppard: The Definitive Visual History 
Ross Halfin (Photographer)

Reviewed by: Roger Scales

If you love this band, you will love this book!  There are very few rock bands that have managed to survive as many highs and lows as Def Leppard. This fully authorized visual history of the band starting in 1978 runs right through their present day (book was first published in 2011) activities. Photographer Ross Halfin was along for the entire ride.  At 3.5 pounds this book is packed with amazing color and black/white images capturing over 450 photos many unseen and previously unpublished.  You get text and commentary from not only Halfin but the band members themselves throughout each chapter.  Along with a forward by Joe Elliot each band member also has a brief one or two page synopsis on what each of them took away from it after seeing the finished copy of the book.

Getting To Know Message To Venus

messagetovenus_promo_3Hailing from Puerto Rico, Message to Venus just wrapped up their first full continental U.S. tour dubbed the “Pushing The Envelope Tour”. TWRY spent a few minutes with Message to Venus bassist Edgar Ramos to find out a little about the band, the new disc they are working on and their 2011 EP The Envelope. So take a little time and get to know Message to Venus!

Interviewed by: Roger Scales

 

Message To Venus is the first ever Rock n Roll band I have ever interviewed that hails from Puerto Rico.  How long has the band been together and who thought of the name of the group?
The project started in 2008.  We have been friends for many years now and have worked together in past projects. The name of the band was originally supposed to be the name of a song.  At the time it was just words on a page but the name of that song soon became an idea that we went with for the group.  It just felt natural and we stuck with it.
