AD: Def Leppard for GHS Strings

"BOOMERS MEAN PLATINUM"

Apparently in ’90, the guitar corps of Def Leppard—Steve “Steamin'” Clark, Phil Collen, and Rick Savage—were so pervasive that they only needed billed as “Steve, Phil & Sav.” This ad appeared in Guitar for the Practicing Musician, January 1990, as they were still riding the wave of the multi-platinum Hysteria, the very height of the band’s success. It’s not clear if there’s actually a direct correlation between using GHS strings and making giant albums, as the ad seems to imply.
