Rick Allen and everybody involved with Def Leppard would like to especially thank Doreen Billington, Eileen Pearle, Dr. Page, Dr. Ewans, the staff at the Royal Hallamshire, and everybody who wrote, called and supported us after the accident. He's back, we're back and we'll see you on tour in 1987/8/9!

Def Leppard Salutes "Captain Love" for his contributions to the creation of this record. If you delve into this list, you, too, will understand and appreciate this man's importance (not to mention, the entire history of the world since 1984!).

The Members of Def Leppard Play and Recommend the Following Equipment:
Rick plays Simmons Drum Pads and various Simmons Drum Machines, Shark Foot Pedals and Zildjian Cymbals. Rick and all of us would like to thank Bas, Lloyd and Andy at Simmons Electronics, Arndt Anderson of Shark and the legendary Ian Croft at Zildjian for putting Richard back behind the drums.

Sav plays Hamer Basses exclusively. Thanks to Paul Hamer and Joel Danzig at Hamer Guitars.

Phil plays Jackson Guitars equipped with Kahler tremolo arms exclusively. Thanks to Grover Jackson and Joanne and all at Jackson/Charvel Guitars and to Dave Storey, Gary Kahler, Roger Garvin and Sue Ellwanger at Kahler.

Steve will only ever play Gibson Guitars. Thanks to all the staff at Gibson Guitars.

Messers Clark and Collen use Randall Amplification (to get that "rad" Def Leppard guitar sound...). They would like to thank Bill Acton and Chuck Widner at Randall for help above and beyond the call of duty.

Joe plays golf with Spalding "Executive" Irins and Woods, "Dunlop 65", Golf Balls (courtesy of Shell Garages, Ireland); and Soccer with anyone who'll get out of bed.

Finally, we would like to thank everybody at Hoshino Industries (Tama Drums and Ibanez Guitars) for their help and support over the past couple of years.
Who knows, Joe, maybe that Bass Drum will make it on stage, yet!!
