The rock and roll photographer Ross Halfin posted several photos of Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott on Instagram to celebrate his birthday, but Mötley Crüe icon Nikki Sixx had another theory on his real age.

The co-founder and lead singer of the British rock band Def Leppard, Joe Elliott has recently turned 61 years old. The iconic frontman remembered by his loved ones and fans around the world on his special day on social media.

The famous rock and roll photographer Ross Halfin posted several photos of Joe Elliott on Instagram to wish him a happy birthday. As you will see in the photos below, Halfin preferred to share the youngest and wildest memories of Elliott to celebrate his 61st birthday.

On the caption of his post, Ross Halfin created confusion about Joe’s real age by claiming he was actually 71 years old. Halfin insisted that Joe Elliott was lying about his age and he supposed to be 10 years older than Ross.

“Here’s what Ross Halfin stated on the caption of his recent post:
Well, as he’s 71 today, let’s all wish a very happy birthday today to Mr. Joe Elliott.

And before you lot start telling me he’s 61, he’s lying, he’s actually 10 years older than me. I always thought he looked great for his age, so Phil Collen eats your heart out, or your vegan burger, cos Joe’s a real man.”

Furthermore, Mötley Crüe‘s iconic bassist Nikki Sixx joined the discussion by asserting although Ross Halfin was at his 60s, he looked like an 87 years old man.

Here’s what Nikki Sixx stated on his comment about Ross Halfin:

“Ha. Ross, you maybe 60 something but ya look 87.”
