Joe Elliott knows who will induct Def Leppard into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month. He's just not saying...yet.
In a recent interview Elliott said, "I'm very pleased with that decision but I'm not at liberty to say who because there are still minute possibilities that said person can't do it. But, it's likely that they will and the second that we know it's absolutely locked in, we'll make sure that everybody knows."
Def Leppard -- Joe in particular -- is very close to Queen 's Brian May , as well as Ian Hunter . Given the fact that Queen is in the Rock Hall and the Bohemian Rhapsody movie is all the rage, May sounds like a good choice.
But then there are the Taylor Swift s and Tim McGraw s of the world who are big fans and have worked with them.
This year's ceremony is March 29th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Joining Def Leppard in the Class of 2019 are The Zombies , Roxy Music , Stevie Nicks , Janet Jackson , The Cure and Radiohead .
