STEVE CLARK: I have been using a Gibson Firebird for songs like Too Late For Love and Love and Affection. I use it because it’s a sort of compromise between a Strat and a Les Paul – it’s got a Strat-like bite to it but it’s also got the warmth of a Paul.

The one I use was specially made for me by Gibson and I got ’em to put coil taps in it that are controlled by a push/pull pot in the treble pickup volume control position.

Actually, a couple of my new Les Pauls have this facility too.
[July 1988]

Steve explains his Pyromania Tour rack/backline/effects:

"On this tour I’m using two 50 watt Marshalls that have been converted to 100 watts, and two straight 100 watt Marshalls. One of the 50’s is driving two cabinets in the backline.

One is driving a 4×12” at the side of the stage which I use for feedback and sustain solos. I have three different effects; a Boss Chorus and Delay and a Morley Preamp Booster."

"Steve has such a great knowledge of music and distinct chordal sound that was unique. Steve always played inversions in his chords. It was never the standard chord, so it makes it very hard to correctly learn how to play a Def Leppard song during the Steve era because of his style.

You can get something to sound like it, but unless you learn inversions, it will never be exact." - HURRICANE JOE
