NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Def Leppard? Meet the deaf Leopards.
The British rockers behind a string of hits in the 1980s and ’90s, including “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Photograph,” met Wednesday before their show near Little Rock with students from the Arkansas School for the Deaf. The school mascot? The Leopards, of course.
The group posed for photos holding a replica of the school’s scoreboard and in front of a banner emblazoned with the band’s name. The band later posted them on social media with the caption “Arkansas Deaf Leopards and #DefLeppard.”
The meeting came about after an online petition.
