Eddie Trunk Rocks - Phil Collen Interview Highlights Transcript

Def Leppard 2014 Tour

"We've been getting offers in - it's kind of weird you never know if you can do it. You know different countries and stuff and summer tours and what have you. Another residency at some point doing VIVA! Pyromania which will be really cool. We're not sure when that'll be."

Def Leppard 2014 Recording Plans

"We are going in the studio. It's actually gonna be 1st February we're actually going to Dublin. To Joe's house and we're just gonna - I've got some great ideas for new songs cause we haven't had an album out in so long. And everyone's been you know stockpiling. It's like a band with our first album really it's been a few years so we've got all these great ideas. I'm really, really excited about it. So I don't know whether it'll be an album or the odd song or what but actually - that's the idea we're just gonna go in and record songs. So it'll be new Def Leppard music for sure. And you know I would imagine it would be 2015 unless you know we put some of these out. On a TV show or a movie or something like that so yeah never really know but it's wide open. And actually we're gonna do some new Manraze music as well in January so it's yeah busy, Busy, busy."
