Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott had a chat with Express.co.uk about Def Leppard.
He mentioned that his voice is even better than it was 40 years ago:
“It’s stronger than it used to be, best it’s ever been,” says Joe.
“I’d love to say I don’t know how it happened but I do know how it happened. I worked incredibly hard with a vocal coach from Los Angeles. When we realized we’d be going out on tour with almost 250 shows and no opening act, so two and a half hours a night, we knew that we were going to need training.
“We worked with the vocal coach, who doesn’t teach you to sing, he teaches you how not to use your voice. Exercising it properly before you go out on stage.
“When I got pneumonia and I got the hundred-day cough, it totally destroyed my vocal cords, to the point where my throat doctor said to me, ‘If you weren’t you I’d tell you to retire because this is never going to get better.’”
