Since then, Elliott’s vocals have contributed to the band’s signature sound and longevity. Born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Elliott spontaneously met the members of a local band called Atomic Mass after missing his bus to school. Upon finding out they were both musicians, Elliott joined band members including Rick Savage, and convinced the group to change their name to Def Leppard. The rest is history…
