Pyromania vs. Pyromania: Def Leppard Tribute Band Feud A-Brewin'

Pyromania found their drummer, apparently.
A heavy metal feud is brewing between California and Dallas.

Seems Southern California's Def Leppard tribute band is pretty pissed off at Dallas' Def Leppard tribute band, according to Spinner and NME. Perusing the Huntington Beach-based Leppard tribute band's website confirms that, alas, it is true:

Seems there is a Def Leppard tribute band in Dallas who call themselves Pyromania and are looking for a one armed drummer.

We wanted to set the record straight that we have nothing to do with this ad and we are not looking for a drummer and feel is is in VERY BAD TASTE!! We have much respect for Rick Allen and Def Leppard and We have a great love and honor for their music. Please do not confuse us with this complete discusting and disrespectful behaviour.

This, of course, is in response to Pyromania Dallas' "seeking one arm drummer" poster floating around the Internet.

Last week, we put a call into the band's advertised number, only to find an automated message that the position has been filled. Since then, Pyromania Dallas has stirred the Internet beehive  -- the poster floated all the way to Rolling Stone -- and baffled spelling bee champs worldwide.

We're just hoping for a (Dallas) Pyromania show in the near future.

Official word on this from Hysteria, the only Def Leppard tribute band based in the South, is that we had nothing to do with this. We have reached out to the owner of the number listed on the ad, and he said that this was a joke played on him by a friend. To clear up any confusion, we have also spoken with Pyromania in California to assure them that we had nothing to do with this tasteless ad. They understood and appreciated us setting the record straight.
