Def Leppard's Joe Elliott makes another Morrissey comparison

I just came across this strange article where Def Leppard's lead singer compares his band with Morrissey. Really bloody strange bit of news, I must say:

Def Leppard Gets No Respect, Says Singer Joe Elliott - TripleM Music

If only his shite band never released any music, there I go again dreaming. What an absolute & utter wanker that nutjob is.

Excerpt:

"We've sold more records than Morrissey and I think I'm a better singer than Morrissey and we think we write better songs than Morrissey yet they'll still think that Morrissey is really cool because he was once in The Smiths.

"I've got nothing against Morrissey, I've got something against the press that think that way."

Of all those terrible 80s rock bands, Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Kiss and so on, Def Leppard were the absolute worst. Dreadful, dreadful, dreadful. It is true they don't get the level of respect they deserve though. They should get zero.

Morrissey has done with just one song way more (and he has LOTS of perfect songs) than what you def leppard haven't done in your whole music carreer. Plus doesnt matter if he was in the smiths before, he has a very prolific solo carrer, and u def leppard are doomed to be forgoten. Joe Elliot, poor depresed guy :D

That was f***ing funny as hell. Does he really think his shitty ass band can even begin to compare to Morrissey?

If this guy's little mind cares that much about what the press thinks of him then yes he is not cooler than Morrissey. What a funny little man :) What now?

Even today at their advanced age, Def Leppard are still a pretty decent rock outfit, but Joe Elliot doesn't rise to the knees of Morrissey as a lyricist/songwriter.
