Re: Greatest "HAIR BAND" Tournament - Round 2: DEF LEPPARD (#3) vs WHITESNAKE (#11)
Voting for Def Leppard as well. Whitesnake had an "appeal" with a couple
of their songs (to me anyway) but as a whole, I never cared for them that
much. Def Leppard was a band I liked a lot, but never could see them as
neither a "Hair Band" act, nor a serious Rock Band. Even after they were
past their prime (80s) and they matured, they kept trying to change their
image to fit what was popular at the time. They tired to get "serious" and
do a more Bluesy Rock thing. Tried an album of classic British Rock and
Glam, and even dabbled in Grung. None of it fit them. Eventually they
ended up full circle and their most recent success came when they tired
going back to their 80s stuff, and even though it only appealed to a certain
sect of the population (aka: The Old Crowd), it had a nice "flavor".
Voting for Def Leppard in this matchup. They are the better band, and
they were the better of these two acts when both were in their prime.
