    Def Leppard Slang Album Review

    This week we invited Bill Algee from Ages Of Rock Podcast to dive deep and go track by track through “Slang” the 6th Studio Album release by Def Leppard.

Great Show

Discovered the show thru SIOLcast. Steven Michael makes a great pair with Sonny “The Horniest Man Alive” Poony.

Great rock commentary and whether you agree or disagree with the two you find the humor and retrospect great.
