BIG Music News: Def Leppard, Whitney Houston

DEF LEPPARD:  Hysteria is back on the chart

Def Leppard is back on the charts with an album originally released in 1987.

The 30th anniversary edition of Hysteria debuted at number-79 after selling 8,000 copies. That's its first appearance on the Billboard 200 since 1990.

In 1987, Hysteria debuted at number-36 and climbed its way to number-one a year later, spending six weeks there. In all, it spent 78 weeks in the Top 10, the longest run for a rock band in the chart's 61-year history. It has sold more than 12-million copies.

Seven singles were released from the album, and four of them reached the Top 10: "Hysteria,” “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” “Love Bites” and “Armageddon It."

WHITNEY HOUSTON:  Trailer for new documentary

A trailer for the Whitney Houston documentary that will debut August 26th has been posted by Showtime. Can I Be Me looks at the awesome talent and troubled life of the late diva.

Weaving together never-before-seen video, candid interviews and behind-the-scenes performance footage, this is a raw and uncensored portrait of Whitney Houston.

Five years after her drug-related death at age 48, the directors focus on Houston's central dilemma: even though she had made a fortune and was recognized as one of the greatest voices ever, she still was unable to do what she wanted, either professionally or in her personal life.
