Tom Cruise, Def Leppard Fan? Guitarist States, 'Yes'
Frat boy anthem and beer-chugging track 'Pour Some Sugar on Me,' by Def Leppard, is a one of the seminal tunes in the hair-metal era -- no less than according to Tom Cruise. Inside an interview with NoiseCreep, Leppard guitarist Phil Collen recounted his visit to the audience of Cruise's approaching film, 'Rock old range,' in which the 'Mission: Impossible' star plays rock star Stacee Jaxx, lead singer in the eighties band Toolbox. Collen and also the bandmates were requested to find out Cruise film a scene where he sings 'Pour Some Sugar on Me.' After Tom sang the song within the own voice -- which impressed this rock band -- he needed time for you to provide Def Leppard some praise. "I used to be really pleased with how lower-to-earth Tom was," mentioned Collen. "He was very humble and extremely told us how he thought 'Pour Some Sugar on Me' would be a complete classic. He mentioned it deserved all of the respect and attention they can provide. And then we were certainly honored." No matter what your opinion is of 'Pour Some Sugar on Me,' watching Tom Cruise sing it'll hopefully bring a grin towards the song's finest detractors. But you will have to delay until June 1, when 'Rock of Ages' hits theaters, to finally participate in it. [via NoiseCreep] [Photo: WireImage] Follow Moviefone on Twitter Like Moviefone on Facebook
