Wow. That's a first.

So you like them AFTER their drummer lost his arm better?

I saw Def Leppard on the "Hysteria" tour.
I wasn't impressed. Joe Elliot's voice
is terrible.

I saw them, if I recall correctly, in 1988 on the Hysteria tour. They had a huge curtain which dropped down just as the show started, which was rather cool. They put on a great show. They make melodic and interesting rock songs, and have two good guitarists who complement eachother (or at least they did!). They are let down a little by Joe Elliot who isn't a great or interesting singer. In later years they did a great cover of Bowie's Ziggy Stardust. Some nice pics of them with Brian: http://www.google.co.uk/url?source=imglanding&ct=img&q=http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/127/fa617824dad298dd70a06a9edcdc2e11/l.jpg&sa=X&ei=bbt6T7DJDsWu8APAzfnBCA&ved=0CAsQ8wc4Cg&usg=AFQjCNF5VD9Gj1sQupNBbMS_zfhNJZJ56w>

he's really creaming his pants at the thought of the album that follows Phil Collen's "fingers in bailing machine accident"
and Joe Elliot's "fight with a bear, that results in said bear ripping out his vocal chords"
...on second thoughts, the album after the Elliot accident could be quite interesting

Please quantify this very strange sentence.

we all have our own benchmarks/standards in life
it's how we form personal opinions on what's good or bad....music is no exception

however, i really can't work out what weird sliding scale puts Joe Elliot (average a singer that he is) BELOW Paul Stanley & Gene Simmons as a vocalist?

unless JPF "likes" singers in some kind of reverse order...that being the case, the top of his list must be outstandingly bad

Really?  Because they lip-synched a lot of the tracks on that tour.  I thought they did a pretty good job f-f-foolingeverybody.

that's no way to be. i listen to planet rock loads, and it gives me chance to listen and give bands i usually avoid a chance

and much as i dislike some bands, listening to their "shit" while doing other things, allows your ears to be opened and you can appreciate things

I've just listened to Hysteria twice for you.  If you felt yourself overcome by the need to close your eyes and rock, that was me.

Silly girl! :)

One thing's for sure, Def Leppard is 100 times the band Kiss is. If they all had one arm, and not just the drummer, they'd still play their instruments better than Kiss.

Absolutely. And I think what Holly means by "if they all had one arm" is that if you lined them all up against a wall and there was like literally one arm, they would still play their instruments better than KISS. They would also be better at signing autographs than Tommy Thayer and better than Gene on top, according to the three people that ever bothered to ask and 5078 women respectively. Finally they would be much better than Paul at concealing any latent homosexuality. Nothing to do with arms there, just everybody is better than Paul at that.
