Def Leppard- Rock On- Abbey Road Studios London 2008

When Pink Floyd were putting the finishing touches on "Dark Side of the Moon" at Abbey Road Studios, a very young and impressionable Joe Elliott and Ric Savage would have been all ears in the northern industrial city of Manchester hearing  the delicious, otherworldly song "Rock On" by David Essex on BBC Radio One.
