Def Leppard guitarists Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell's interview with Nikki Sixx was broadcast last night on Sixx Sense and some quotes are available.

A series of short clips totalling 9 minutes were played during the show.

Phil/Vivian talked about rehearsing old songs for the Ded Flatbird set in Las Vegas, the simplicity of older material from OTTN/HND, the Vegas stage show, Vivian's illness, Phil's hand injury/surgery, recording a new Def Leppard EP/studio work and Vivian's hair.

The full interview should be available soon to download via the show's website. Two photos from the interview conducted a few days ago were also posted on twitter.

Sixx Sense - Phil Collen/Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

Ded Flatbird

Phil - "We went to rehearse Good Morning Freedom and Rick just stopped playing because he said the last time I played this I had two arms so I had to rethink everything he said just give me a minute here. And that was the first time he played that song since. I mean it's the first time me and Vivian had played it ever. So it was interesting he had to kind of readjust."

New Def Leppard EP

Phil - "Depends on what happens you know we're notorious for taking ages."

Vivian - "If we made a commitment to do an album I mean that is easily a year. Unfortunately it is what it is. You'd like to think that as we get more experienced we'd be able to knock out a record a bit quicker. But we've tried and we've failed countless times so you know just being realistic about it. And we can't really afford to do that. It doesn't make financial sense as you know yourself I mean you're making albums for your core fans. You're not making albums in the hopes of selling millions of records. That's not gonna happen. That's not to say it's not important to do that but for us it's further compounded by the fact that we live all over the world."
