Joseph Thomas Elliott attended the King Edward VII School in Sheffield. The story how “Def Leppard” was formed is interesting. In 1977, Elliott met Pete Willis, entirely accidentally, after missing a bus. Willis was the member of the band called Atomic Mass, and he introduced Elliott to other band members. Elliott tried to play guitar, but he had ideas to be a lead singer of a band. His suggestion of the band’s new name Deaf Leopard was well received by other members, but they wanted to be more “ear-catching” and distinguished, so Def Leppard became the band’s new name. Elliott became an integral part of it as a singer and songwriter.
Elliott and Def Leppard’s biggest commercial success came between the early ’80s and the early ’90’s. Their debut album “On Through the Night” was released in 1980, but the second album “High ‘n’ Dry” (1981) was a big success and defined their style. Their next release “Pyromania” (1983) was a total hit and went Diamond with over 10 million copies sold in the US alone. However, the band’s fourth studio album “Hysteria” (1987) reached beyond the success of the previous one, and sold over 25 million copies worldwide – at that moment, Joe Elliot became a multimillionaire. Def Leppard released another seven albums, and sold over 100 million copies worldwide which makes them one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
