Def Leppard recently posted a photo of Phil Collen and Steve Clark and announced that the band’s guitarist Phil Collen will honor the 30th anniversary of Steve’s passing by answering any question that their or his fans may have.
As you may recall, Steve Clark was the lead songwriter and guitarist of the well-known English rock band Def Leppard. Sadly, in 1991, he passed away due to alcohol poisoning, and his passing was mourned by millions of fans. Upon his passing, he ranked Number 27 on the ‘100 Wildest Guitar Heroes’ list of Classic Rock Magazine. He was also inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame posthumously in 2019.
Steve Clark joined Def Leppard in 1978 and met Phil Collen who had replaced Pete Willis in 1982. The two of them became one of the most iconic duos in the rock scene as they quickly bonded and became best friends. Their close relationship was apparent in their performances too as it led to the trademark dual-guitar sound of Def Leppard.
Clark and Collen were inseparable and they were nicknamed ‘Terror Twins‘ both due to their close friendship and their alcohol-fueled adventures off-stage. Thus, in honor of Steve Clark’s passing, Phil Collen decided to answer any questions their fans may have about the unforgettable guitarist who left us too soon.
Here’s what Def Leppard wrote in the caption of their recent Instagram post:
“In honor of the upcoming 30th anniversary of Steve Clark’s passing, Phil will be answering fan questions about Steve. Comment below your questions about Steve for Phil. 🎸”
