NEW YORK, NY, June 22, 2001 - In a music scene marked by excess, it's perhaps not surprising that one of the biggest rock bands of the 1980s fell victim to drug and alcohol addiction. But what's really shocking is that Def Leppard not only managed to overcome the worst kind of personal and professional tragedies - they also re-emerged to play in front of their biggest-ever audiences.
