During an interview with HuffPost Live, Def Leppard leadman Joe Elliott said that, if offered a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he would turn it down.

Elliott says, “In fact, we’ve kind of all decided that even if we get asked we’re just going to — how can I put this? — politely refuse, like the Sex Pistols did. Unless there was some sort of online campaign by our fans cause they were annoyed with us.”

  • The fans’ appreciation, according to Elliott, is where it’s at anyway.
  • “The biggest compliment I ever got was my first … platinum disc because it’s a representation of 1 million people who’ve bought your album, and those million mean a lot more to me than some people that decide whether you fit for the Hall of Fame,” Elliott added.
