Today is the 21st anniversary of the passing of original guitarist and co-founder of Def Leppard Steve Clark. Clark, who played with the band for almost 13 years, died from an overdose of alcohol and prescription drugs at his home in London, England.

Def Leppard’s official web site posted this message: “We are sure that you will all join us today as we remember a shining light who unfortunately parted our midst 21 years ago. Always thinking of you, Steve.”
