  1. Why is Steve Clark not mentioned? That is very disrespectful. His songwriting got the band off and running in the early days. Shame on whoever wrote this! You could only hope to be remembered as much as he is after 30 years!

    • They don’t mention Sav’s earnings, either. I don’t think it’s disrespectful. I think there’s some misinformation; but, not disrespectful. Afterall, looking individually, between Sav & Joe, which is roughly $150 mil (I looked up individually) that already shows there’s some misinformation. Steve, individually, what I saw, was worth $30 mil. And, out of respect for Steve’s living relatives, I think it’s good they don’t mention his worth. There are some weird people out there. I’ve even had “Steve Clark” (yes, a fake acct) ask me for money to sue Def Leppard for “forcing me into rehab”. I can only imagine the heartbreak for the family.
