Def Leppard releases new song featuring Tom Morello

Def Leppard released a new song called “Just Like 73” which also has the Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello. As the title of the single suggests, their inspiration came from the early 70s music, but especially Glam Rock.


Leppard is currently preparing for a North American tour alongside Journey. Besides Joe Elliott and Phil Collen, who were credited as the lyricists of the song alongside the composer Dave Bassett, the band has been the same since the early 90s. Also featuring Rick Allen, Rick Savage and Vivian Campbell.

Hear the new Def Leppard song “Just Like 73”, featuring Tom Morello:

In an official statement, the guitarist Tom Morello talked about the track, saying: “I played ‘Rock of Ages’ in my college cover band nearly 40 years ago,” he shared in a press release. The Rage Against the Machine guitarist takes the lead on the guitar solo, using his distinctive whammy bar to further enhance the vintage vibes of “Just Like ‘73,” Tom Morello said.

Leppard’s guitarist Phil Collen, who is one of the lyricists of the song, also talked about the track, saying: “When I saw David Bowie on TV between 1972 and 1973, everything I thought I knew about music went from black and white to vivid Technicolor. Just Like ‘73’ represents that awakening.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
